When the scribes confront Jesus in the temple, they ask Him which commandment is the most important. Many churches center their ministries on His response: "Love God and love people." Josh reminds us that Jesus' command is not about creating a list of things to do or a personal theology on how to walk out "love God and love people." It's not about a striving to perform better or having a sounder plan to accomplish the command. Instead, it's about a dependency on Jesus to show us how and to empower us to walk that out. Mark 12:28-34; Matthew 22:34-35; Luke 10:25; Matthew 19:16; Deuteronomy 6:4-6; Leviticus 19:18; John 14:15; Romans 3:9-26; 1 John 4:7-21.
