Love your neighbour as yourself

n the Old Testament two commands sum up the law: love the Lord with all your heart, and love your neighbour as yourself.

Yet after the resurrection of Jesus, no more in the New Testament is there mention of the first, only the second: love your neighbour as yourself.

Why is this? Because now with the Pentecostal outpouring of God’s Spirit, we are fully empowered as God’s missionary people through the commissioning of the risen Christ– to love God by loving our neighbour.
