k No. 6

Greatest Commandment:

One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?”
Mk 12:28 31
29 “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this:
‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.
30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ 31 The second is this:
‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
There is no commandment greater than these.”
1 Jn. 4:20-21.
20 Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen.

21 And He has given us this command: Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister.
Jn 15:9-10.
Jn 15:12
This is my commandment:
love one another as I love you.
Loving your neighbor, together with loving God,
form the core of the Christian life.
Jesus summed up the whole law
in these two greatest commandments.
The two go together
"No love for others, no Christianity."
What Christian love is not.
1. Love is not only
having positive feelings
2. Love is not always saying "yes".
3. Love
is not
4. Love is not self seeking.
5. Love is not
So what is Christian love?
What does God mean by love?
1. Answer in John 15.
Jesus spoke of a love that is connected with
keeping God's commandments.
Jesus was specific about how we are to love one another.
How does
Jesus love?
Jn. 15:13.
No one has greater love than this,
to lay down one's life for one's friends
But most are not called to actually die for others. How then do we translate love into practical everyday terms?
a) The answer is in
John 13:1-5
It was just before the Passover Festival.
Jesus knew that the hour had come for him
to leave this world and go to the Father.
Having loved his own who were in the world,
he loved them to the end.
2 The evening meal was in progress, and the devil
had already prompted Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot,
to betray Jesus. 3 Jesus knew that the Father had put
all things under his power, and that he had come from
God and was returning to God; 4 so he got up from the meal,
took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around
his waist. 5 After that, he poured water into a basin
and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them
with the towel that was wrapped around him.
Thus, dying on the cross was not
the only example Jesus gave.
He demonstrated Christian
love as
service love
c) When he finished,
Jesus told them to do likewise.
Jn 13:14 15.
Now that I, your Lord and Teacher,
have washed your feet, you also should wash
one another’s feet. 15 I have set you an
example that you should do as I have done for you.
Jn. 13:34.
I give you a new commandment:
Love one another. As I have loved you,
so you also should love one another.
Christian love
is committed service
Gal 5:13b-14.
13 You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free.
But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love. 14 For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command:
“Love your neighbor as yourself.”
Who is your neighbor?
Can you choose whom to love?
Parable of the Good Samaritan

Lk. 10:29b-37.
But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”
30 In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. 31 A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. 32 So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. 34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35 The next day he took out two denarii[a] and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’
36 “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”
37 The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him. “Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.
How do we love
in everyday life?
Characteristics of
Christian love
1 Cor 13:4-7.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy,
it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

2. Read the passage yourself but
am patient,
am kind.
do not envy,
do not boast,
am not proud.
do not dishonor others,
am not self-seeking,

and it is essential to Christianity.

is difficult or even impossible,

And hope does not put us to shame,
because God’s love has been poured out
into our hearts through the Holy Spirit,
who has been given to us.

All men in need of our help are our neighbors.
