A Gospel Summary in Four Words


Love God. Love Neighbor. The fulfillment of the Old Testament that Jesus embodied is revealed in these four wordsa most striking summary of the gospel. Sometimes we overcomplicate things when it comes to faith, God, and spirituality. However, this gospel summary reminds us that love of God and love of neighbor are what matters most.


Dear Jesus,
teach me to love you
above all things
and to love my neighbor
as myself.
Show me what it means
to truly live the gospel message
in these powerful words.
Help me be your hands, feet,
and presence in the world
to all those I encounter.


Who is my neighbor, and how am I called to love him or her today?
