42: All God’s law is love.

“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
Jesus replied, “’Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
Matthew 22:36-40 NIV

Jesus, the Word made flesh, condensed the Ten Commandments into two: Love God; love others. All God’s law is love. Nothing more, nothing less.

By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and obey his commandments.
1John 5:2 ESV

Only when we begin to love God rightly do we begin to know how to love others. Ask God how you can love Him today.
