“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
Jesus was asked this question by someone who probably was trying to trick him into saying something that could be held against him. If Jesus lifted up one of God’s commands over another he could be accused of not taking all of God’s Word seriously. However, let’s put aside the motivation for the question and think about it from another perspective. How many times do we look for that one thing that we can do that will please God and make us look good in his eyes? When we do this it is an attempt to find that one thing that will set us free. We need to learn that it is not what we do that will set us free it is who Jesus is in our lives that will set us free. When Jesus is the companion that walks with us on a daily basis then we will be set free.
Do you know Jesus in such a way that it frees you from the weight of sin that holds you back?
