WHAT IS THE GREATEST AND FOREMOST COMMANDMENT DOES SCRIPTURE TELL US HOW TO DO IT?

 

THE FOREMOST COMMANDMENT

Matt 22:36 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in theLaw?”
37 And He said to him, ” ‘YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GODWITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALLYOUR MIND.’
39 “Thesecond is like it, ‘YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.’
40“On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets.”
STEPS TO OBEYING THE FOREMOST COMMANDMENT

2 Peter 1:5-10Amplified Bible (AMP) Biblegateway.com

For this very reason, applying your diligence [to the divine promises, make every effort] in [exercising] your faith to, [a]develop moral excellence, and in moral excellence, knowledge (insight, understanding),and in your knowledge, self-control, and in your self-control, steadfastness, and in your steadfastness, godliness, and in your godliness, brotherly affection, and in your brotherly affection, [develop Christian] love [that is, learn to unselfishly seek the best for others and to do things for their benefit]. For as these qualities are yours and are increasing [in you as you grow toward spiritual maturity], they will keep you from being useless and unproductive in regard to the true knowledge and greater understanding of our Lord Jesus Christ. For whoever lacks these qualities is blind—shortsighted [closing his spiritual eyes to the truth], having become oblivious to the fact that he was cleansed from his old sins. 10 Therefore, believers, be all the more diligent to make certain about His calling and choosing you [be sure that your behavior reflects and confirms your relationship with God]; for by [b]doing these things [actively developing these virtues], you will never stumble [in your spiritual growth and will live a life that leads others away from sin]
