The Biggest Commandment of all.. Jesus command us too..

Love!

Something different today guys..

While meditating on my Bible this morning , i came across this verse and it struck a Chord...


John 15:12-13
12 This is what I command you: Love each other as I have loved you. 13 The greatest love people can show is to die for their friends.14 You are my friends if you do what I tell you to do. 15 I no longer call you servants, because servants don’t know what their master is doing. But now I call you friends, because I have told you everything that my Father told me

I  realise this is the truth!. this single command is the core of all things good , i proceeded to search the other commandments and see how this act of Love can relate to them 




Let's take a look at the 10 commandments:



The 10 Commandments List

  1. You shall have no other gods before Me.If you love God, you will have you will have no other God's before him
  2. You shall not make idols.If you love God, you will have you will have make no other idols
