What’s the Good News?

Love

Throughout history, God has been deeply involved in the lives of God’s creation; humanity. Through the incarnation of God in Christ Jesus, we realize that the Grace of God gives us all the capacity to know God in our personal and public lives. In Matthew 22, Jesus is asked to name the greatest commandment. He perfectly sums up the entirety of our experience on this earth with the response, “Love God and love your neighbor as yourself.” In this double commandment, we are able to truly know God and see Christ in every person we meet.

Matthew 22:36-40

“Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?” He said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”
