The Greatest Commandment

Luke 10:25 (ESV)
And behold, a lawyer stood up to put him to the test, saying, “Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?”

Deuteronomy 6:6-8 (ESV)
And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.

Matthew 23:5-7 (ESV)
They do all their deeds to be seen by others. For they make their phylacteries broad and their fringes long, and they love the place of honor at feasts and the best seats in the synagogues and greetings in the marketplaces and being called rabbi by others.

Luke 10:26-27 (ESV)
He said to him, “What is written in the Law? How do you read it?” And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.”

Luke 10:28a (ESV)
And he said to him, “You have answered correctly…

Luke 10:28 (ESV)
And he said to him, “You have answered correctly; do this and you will live.

It’s one thing to know;
It’s another to live.

It's one thing to teach;
It’s another to embody.

Romans 5:8 (NIV)
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

Luke 10:29 (ESV)
But he, desiring to justify himself, said to Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”

Luke 10:30 (ESV)
Jesus replied, “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell among robbers, who stripped him and beat him and departed, leaving him half dead.

Luke 10:31 (ESV)
Now by chance, a priest was going down that road, and when he saw him he passed by on the other side.

Luke 10:32 (ESV)
So likewise a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side.

Luke 10:33 (ESV)
But a Samaritan, as he journeyed, came to where he was, and when he saw him, he had compassion.

“Let no man eat the bread of the Cuthites (Samaritans), for he who eats their bread is as he who eats swine’s flesh…And do not remember the Cuthites in the Resurrection.”

Eat. Drink. Be Merry.

Eat. Drink. Be Angry.

Luke 10:34 (ESV)
He went to him and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he set him on his own animal and brought him to an inn and took care of him.

Luke 10:35 (ESV)
And the next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper, saying, ‘Take care of him, and whatever more you spend, I will repay you when I come back.’

Luke 10:36-37 (ESV)
Which of these three, do you think, proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell among the robbers?” He said, “The one who showed him mercy.” And Jesus said to him, “You go, and do likewise.”

Love God so fully that you can love your neighbor completely.
