Matthew 22:34 - 22:40

Gospel of Matthew
Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

Steve Gregg discusses the encounter between Jesus and a lawyer who sought to test him by asking which was the greatest commandment in the Law. Jesus quoted Deuteronomy 6 verse 5 saying, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind," adding that loving God and loving one's neighbor were the two greatest commandments. Steve emphasizes that love is the one commandment we should prioritize in our lives and that it is important to help those in need to demonstrate love for both God and fellow human beings. Ultimately, he stresses that love for God and others is an all-encompassing principle that guides the actions and decisions of a true follower of Christ.
