The command, “love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind and strength and your neighbor as yourself” is not just a command but our true purpose.

Hidden in that command is the suggestion that we can commune with God and can know God just as we know any other human being. It suggests that we can be in God’s class of being which Christ came to restore us to.

Whatever we do or create that does not serve our need to fellowship, to connect, to Love is not just a waste but has negative consequences. Any enterprise that will last must serve that fundamental human need. We simplify our lives a great deal when we realize that at the very bottom, what everyone craves is fellowship. What God desires, is fellowship. Our purpose is to uniquely and creatively serve the need for fellowship.

      • The chief purpose of man is to worship God and enjoy Him forever. Without love (which naturally implies and includes fellowship) one cannot fulfill our purpose, hence the need to “uniquely and creatively serve the need for fellowship”

        Fellowship sums up the two great commandments and indeed one cannot love God and hate other human beings

        Wisdom will instruct us to weave fellowship into our daily living for through proper fellowship, life becomes full-er. For without fellowship, what is the purpose of our “light”
        Indeed we cannot be relevant without serving this vital need

  1. We must realize that those who truly seek the glory of God will also seek the welfare of the fallen men for whom God gave His Son. It is impossible to obey the first great command while being disobedient to the second. How can we love the Lord our God with all our heart..soul…mind…and strength…if we do not love our neighbor as ourself? To the same degree it is nothing more than superficial theological drivel to boast about doing missions for the glory of God if we do not have the greatest concern in our hearts for the welfare of the lost men and women who are created in the image of God and yet rush headlong into hell. Let our hearts resonate with the words of the Apostle Paul…”I am telling the truth in Christ…I am not luing…my concience testifies with me in the Holy Spirit…that I have great sorrow and unceasing grief in my heart. For I could wish that I myself were accursed…seperated from Christ for the sake of my brethern..my kinsmen according to the flesh….(Romans 9:1-3).

    • A proof of love for God is love for man for whom God gave His son. If I do not love a fellow human, I do not love God. Love cannot be fragmented and served as we please. If I love God, I love fellow humans. Thank God even though we are babies in love, we can grow in it otherwise who can stand?
