MORNINGTIME 2162
 
And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is , Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt LOVE THE LORD THY GOD with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt LOVE THY NEIGHBOUR as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. Mark 12:29-31. Again, this does NOT do away with the 10 commandments, BUT, it does put them in their proper place in the Lord's Standard of Importance. Let's say, as an illustration, that you HAVE learned to Love the Lord with everything in you. That's most important. By Loving the Lord, He is Living in you, it's now His Love coming from Him, out through you, to those around you. To those of the world around you. To those unlovable, angry, hate-full people even society shoves side. Your Love for them, (Christ's Love through you), is what will change their lives. This isn't about you doing good deeds and earning brownie points. This IS about Christ Living in and through you doing things your flesh would never allow. Flesh says "revenge", Christ says "Forgive". Stop trying to DO what the Bible says to do, that's nothing more than a Biblical checklist. Let CHRIST do what He wants THROUGH you. The Holy Spirit teaches you how to Love God, (Love Christ), Christ Loves through you to others, others see Christ in you and want More, or reject you and your Christ and walk away. People will either Love Christ in you, or hate Christ in you, either way, it's all about Christ, NOT YOU. You have no right to take their reaction to Christ in you, personally. Again, when you love God, (God, Christ, and the Holy Spirit), ALL OTHER "RULES" fall by the wayside. ALL rules. When Christ becomes Supreme in your life, EVERYTHING comes into Proper Order. (Do you think there will be any "rules" in Heaven)? Love God, Seek Christ, Obey the Holy Spirit, and, Be Blessed.
