Love is the Greatest Commandment

As the Father loves me, so I also love you. Remain in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments and remain in his love. John 15:9-10

Jesus gave us two significant commandments, that have been around since they were given to Moses. 1. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart,with all your soul, and with all your mind. 2. You shall love your neighbor as yourself. The two that have the greatest affect on the rest of the commandments. It's not easy when we follow our wills. We can love ourselves with a huge ego, but then that means we exclude others. We can love others but refuse to love God. There are many ways we love but the way Jesus and the commandments ask of us. To love without limits. We can do the same, we have our own trinity to offer to God, where we give love from heart, soul and mind, this is our trinity to give back to God the love he so lavishly gives us. We have three in one within us. But many are not united with their trinity's, some lack a soul. Some lack a heart, and some lack a mind. In the context of not using their mind for God's glory but for their own self driven purposes. We have a gift within ourselves, to love completely. It is uniting the three to make one with God. This is the ultimate love that God asks of us.
