The Second Commandment

Ok so I’ve said that this isn’t second commandment blog the one about my horizontal movement rather than my verticle. I have to admit I find it hard to love the second commandment. I love the first! I love loving God! He is so easy to love, but Jesus refused to let the two be seperate from one another. Jesus said that the Most important way to go about the first commandment is by following the second. “If you have done it unto the least of these my brethren you have done it unto me”. I have to be entirely honest I don’t like that! It is costly, it is messy, it is awkward, it makes me voulnerable and I don’t like it! Oh but I want it. I want to love like Jesus loves. Sacrificially emptying myself in love for my friends. I want to BE this. To carry around His death in my mortal body like Paul talks about. Teach me Jesus.
