C O M M A N D M E N T S
Matthew 22:40

Have you ever competed in a domed stadium or seen a game in one?  Do you fully understand what holds the roof up?  How does that thing stay up there with snow on it?  From what does the roof hang?

In Matthew chapter 22 and at verse 40, Jesus concludes His talk about the greatest commandments, “All the Law and the Prophets hang on these commandments.” 

Jesus is saying that all the Bible’s wisdom and insight for living hang on the commands to love God and to love people.  How much of your life hangs on these?  How deeply have you committed yourself to loving God, then to appropriating His inexhaustible love toward others? 

Let’s make it our mission to abandon all in the pursuit of this kind of love.  The whole of life hangs on loving God and people. 

Let’s also abandon all tonight in pursuit of today’s victory.  The whole of this season may hang on this ball game.  We can best do that as we love God with every fiber of our beings and love others as we love ourselves.
