Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered outside the gate. Therefore, let us go forth to him outside the camp, bearing his reproach. For we have no continuing city here, but we seek one to come.
Select a thought to read by choosing a collection, the month, and then the day:
I heard your father say while listening to him this week on an old cassette tape from 1971 that the greatest commandment in the OT was, “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.” Then he said, “But the greatest commandment in the New Testament was when Jesus commanded the disciples: that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me.” Then he continued, saying that without the holy Ghost, we would not be able to keep that first commandment.
And then, Uncle Joe started preaching.
Whew! I feel like I have been in my meeting for this week, too! I just love the simplicity that I feel when I hear both of them! It just clears the air of all the “stuff” and brings you to that place where there is “nothing but God.”
Well, praise God!! What a blessed life!
“Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”
