Title: The Greatest Commandment
Speaker: Pastor Darryl J. Stalter
Scripture: Matthew 22:34-40
The Bible includes many commands. too many if we are honest. So, we often seek a way to summarize it. If we are not careful, we often come to the Bible asking what the bare minimum is required of us and attempt to do that. In the back of our minds we think that we just did something great. However, the obedience that God calls us to is not one of performing certain minimal metrics, but one that follows him from a changed heart. In Matthew 22 Jesus summarizes God’s commands as a heart that loves God and others.
