TEXT: MATTHEW 22:37-40
(37) Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
(38) This is the first and great commandment.
(39) And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
(40) On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
KEY VERSE: JOHN 13:35
By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
The believers who are sanctified, who have the light of Christ gloriously shining in them, who have finished the work of the cross and have the mark of Jesus Christ upon them, are the people who also manifest love as evidence, their allegiance and fellowship with CHRIST. Love is their language by manifestation. All the law refers to all the writings of Moses, then adding the poetic and prophetic writings of Proverbs and Psalms, and also the writings from Joshua all the way up to Malachi are considered as the writings of love. So Jesus refers to all the law. All that Moses and the prophets wrote about is Love. So then, holiness is to live in love; which is love towards God and love towards one's neighbor.
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
How should your love toward God be? The Bible tells us that it should be with all your heart. If your heart is worth one hundred thousand dollars, it means that you should give the whole of it to God. Anything short of that is not holiness because the Bible says with all your heart and with all your strength. Then with your entire mind; which deals with your thoughts, your pleasures, delight and joy. Your whole heart should praise the Lord. Angels give the whole of their beings to the praise of God.
You must love with all your might and with all your ability. Anything you can do is for God. You are to offer your strength willingly and work without considering time or tiredness, because the name of the Lord is involved in what you are doing. Then the Bible says also that you should love your neighbor to the point you love yourself. The good you wish for yourself, wish the same for your neighbor and the evil you do not wish for yourself, do not wish it for your neighbor. That is how the life of a true believer should be in complete holiness.
