How Does a Church Say Love (Pt 2)

SCRIPTURE:

Matthew 28:19-20a Living Bible: Jesus, resurrected, came and said to the disciples:
19 Go and make disciples in all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the [Creator] and of the [Christ] and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and then teach these new disciples…

Mark 16:15 Common English Bible: Again, Jesus, resurrected, said to the disciples:
15 Go into the whole world and proclaim the good news to every creature.

Luke 10:25 New Living Translation: Jesus teaching:
25 One day an expert in religious law stood up to test Jesus by asking him this question:
“Teacher, what should I do to inherit eternal life?”

26 Jesus replied, “What does the law of Moses say? How do you read it?”
27 The man answered, “‘You must love… God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind.’
And, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”

28 “Right!” Jesus told him. “Do this and you will live!”
29 Then the man wanted to justify his actions, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”

Then Jesus told the story we call “The Good Samaritan.”

John 15:9, 12-14, 17 Living Bible: Jesus teaching
9 “I have loved you even as the [Creator] has loved me. Live within my love.
12 I demand that you love each other as much as I love you. 13 And here is how to measure it—the greatest love is shown when a person lays down his life for his friends; 14 and you are my friends if you obey me…. 17 I demand that you love each other,18 for you get enough hate from the world!
