Real Life Discipleship Overview

Matthew 22:34-40
Jesus was essentially asked, “What is the most important instruction in all of God’s book?” (Remember, the New Testament had not yet been written.)

If you want to know God’s heart—what he really wants from you—then read his response once again. Certainly, Jesus’ response is worth memorizing: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and with all your mind….And love your neighbor as yourself” (22:37, 39).

As you go forward in 2015, how can you demonstrate your love for him more this year than last? Jot down an answer or two, or pray specifically asking God to show you a way.
