They arrived again in Jerusalem, and while Jesus was walking in the temple courts, the chief priests, the teachers of the law and the elders came to him. “By what authority are you doing these things?” they asked. “And who gave you authority to do this?” ~ Mark 11:27-28
On the road to Jerusalem, the disciples learned that faith can move mountains through prayer. But it comes at the price of forgiveness and forgiving others. It's what they longed to hear.
The teachings of Christ are offensive to those who follow their own desires. Today, we learn from the voice of Jesus as he teaches us about the two most important commandments...
[First] Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:30-31
GO DEEPER: 2 Corinthians 5: 11-15
NEXT STEP: Is there forgiveness you are denying someone? Or yourself? This will unlock your capcity to love God and others.
