The Commands of Christ

The theme of all Scripture is to love God with all of our hearts and to love one another (which is the Great Commandment in Matthew 22:36-40 and John 13:34), but how do we love God? And how do we know that we are loving our neighbor? The commands of Christ precisely tell us how we should love our neighbor.

These commands are the secret to loving God: Those who accept my commandments and obey them are the ones who love me. And because they love me, my Father will love them. And I will love them and reveal myself to each of them.” (John 14:21).
