Obeying Jesus (4 of 7) / by David Flowers

Sermon Series:  Obeying Jesus: 7 Commands for Every Disciple
Sermon Title:  For the Love of God (4 of 7)
Scripture Reading:  Matthew 22:37-40; Luke 10:25-37; Matthew 5:43-48; John 13:34-35

In his last moments on earth with his core disciples, Jesus said, “Go and make disciples… teaching them to obey all that I have commanded.” So, what are these commands that sincere, authentic followers of Jesus should be obeying? In our Obeying Jesus: 7 Commands for Every Disciple series, we will look closely at the teachings and practices that Jesus said are basic and foundational to faithfully following him. 

Jesus sums up all of the commandments of God into two: Love your Maker and love your neighbor. What does it mean to love God with all of your heart, soul, and mind? Jesus said that our love for God and neighbor, including our enemies, proves whether or not we are really his disciples.

In For the Love of God (4 of 7), pastor David challenges us to display our profession of faith with our lives. Listen to David and view the slides here.
