Neighborhood Life

Helping churches reach their neighbors for Christ.

35 One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: 36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” 37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Matthew 22:35-39 (NIV)

In verse 39, Jesus said that the second commandment is “like” the first one. It literally means that is the same, or equal to the first one. God makes it clear that we can’t love Him without loving our brothers (1 John 4:20). We are called to love our neighbor and this page will provide creative ways to reach out and love our neighbors.
