Matthew 22:34-40

Obedience pleases God, but with so many commands interpreted differently by so many denominations and traditions, what does God really desire of us? Jesus answered this question clearly in Matthew 22:34-40. “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.” “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Jesus said that these two commandments are so great that “the whole Law and the Prophets” depend on them. Only when we love God wholeheartedly and love others as ourselves will we truly obey and please God.
