The Seven C’s of Christian Teamwork

Worship/Study Group

 

And one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question, to test him.
"Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law ?"

And Jesus said to him,

"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart,

and with all your soul, and with all your mind.

Thus is the great and first commandment.

And a second is like it,

You shall love your neighbor as yourself.

On these two commandments depend all the Law and the prophets.
