Memory Verse

“Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

This is the first and great commandment.

And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets” (Matthew 22:36-40).



In as much as we should not ignore the Ten Commandments, it is instructive to know that Jesus Christ in accordance with the grace, wisdom and power granted to Him by His Father, reviewed the whole law and prophets into two: love for God and love for man, as per our memory verses.

While Jesus was on earth, He was constantly challenged by people who erroneously reasoned that He was breaking the law. No one individual or spiritual group (s) should try to diminish the GRACE of God in Christ Jesus. At one point, Jesus explained things to the doubters:

“And, behold, there was a man which had his hand withered. And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath days? that they might accuse him.


And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out?How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days….” (Matthew 12:10-14).


The Ten Commandments and the prophets are hinged on loving God in Christ Jesus, and loving man, no more, no less. Jesus is the fulfilment of the whole law( Matthew 5:17).

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature …”(2Corinthians 5:17)


To grow spiritually requires daily meditation with the word of God (Joshua 1:8) and seeking first the kingdom of God and its righteousness (Matthew 6:33). It also requires total fear of God, and spiritual training in the word of God: “Train yourself to be godly”(1Tim 4:7-8 NIV).



Father, open thou my eyes that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law in Jesus mighty name. Amen.

Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
