Commands of Christ

The theme of all Scripture is to love God with all of our hearts and to love one another (see Matthew 22:40 and John 13:34). But how do we love God? And how do we know that we are loving our neighbor? Christ's commands precisely reveal how we should love our neighbor. They are also the secret to loving God: "He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father..." (John 14:21).
