Loving God, Loving One Another, Growing in Our Relationship with Christ

Loving One Another

 
Jesus also told us which commandment was second in order of importance and that it was much like the first, "Love your neighbor as yourself."  (Mt. 22:39)  In Acts chapter 10, verses 36 through 38 we read that God told the good news through Jesus Christ...and...he (Jesus) went around doing good...because God was with him.  It is our hope, as well as our expectation, that, realizing God is with us, every man, woman, and child who is able to do so would express their love for others by engaging the world around them with good deeds and the good news of Jesus Christ.   "Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve..."  (Mt. 20:28)  May we all find ways to serve others within the community of believers and beyond.
