These Two Commandments

All the law of the prophets rests on these two commandments, love God with all your heart and love your neighbor as yourself. What a wonderful picture we have in this Communion meal of these two great commandments.
         We love God because He first loved us and gave His Only Begotten for us. We love our neighbor because he is a sinner like us. We are freely forgiven, so we freely forgive. God has done us a good turn and we are to do a good turn for those in our midst. We are even to love our enemies, treating them as friends, for in this God is well pleased.

         Here is God’s promise to you, free forgiveness through Jesus. Love Him for it. Here is God’s promise to your brothers and sisters, in Jesus, you are forgiven and so forgive. Love them for His sake.
