The Great Commandment and The Great Commission
Jesus gives The Great Commandment in Mark 12: 30-31
“And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all yourstrength.’ This is the first commandment. “And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”
God is Love and He loves us unconditionally; He demonstrated His love by sending His Son to die for us while we were still sinners. In like fashion, Jesus commands us to love God, and love people unconditionally.
Jesus also gave us The Great Commission in Matthew 28:18-20:
“Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
By His authority He has commissioned us to lovingly reach out to people with the message of His love for them. We as a church are active reach out in love to those in our lives, community, state, nation, and the world, by ministering to them spiritually, physically, mentally, and emotionally. We invite you to reach out with us. May the whole world know the tender love of our gracious God!
