..."What commandment is the foremost (first, greatest, highest) of all?" Jesus answered, "The foremost is 'Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is One Lord; and you shall
the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and all your strength.' The second is this, 'You shall
your neighbor as yourself.' There is no other commandment greater than these."
"A new commandment I give to you, that you
one another, even as I have loved you, that you also
one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have
for one another."
If Love is the foremost, first, greatest, highest...
it means LOVE MATTERS!
These things I have spoken to you that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full.
-Jesus in John 15:11*
My son, give attention to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your sight; Keep them in the midst of your heart. For they are life to those who find them, and health to all their whole body.
Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart; and you shall find rest for your souls.
-Jesus in Mark 11:28-29*
Let the word of Christ dwell richly within you, in all wisdom teaching your minds psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.
Then he said to them, “Go, eat of the fat, drink of the sweet, and send portions to him who has nothing prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord. Do not be grieved, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”.
-Ezra in Nehemiah 8:10*
