Matthew 22: 34–40 for LFM
Summary: By answering the ambiguous question of an expert on biblical law, Jesus defines love of God and neighbor as the center of biblical ethics.

The Diagnosis and the Cure  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 22: 34–46
Summary:  Jesus is asked a standard question about the law and gives a standard answer. There’s little debate about the basic content of the law. The difficulty comes when we try to fulfill the law, when the problem of sin becomes clear. The law diagnoses the disease of sin but can’t cure it. Jesus points toward the cure with his follow-up question about the Messiah, who is to be seen not just as the Son of David but one in whom God is uniquely present to save.

Two Clues for Wonderful Living  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 22: 34–46
Summary: Jesus taught us that the two greatest commandments were exercising love for God and love for our neighbors. A godly person once said that in doing God’s will there is perfect peace. Perfect peace, then, will surely come to those who love God and others. And to have peace and meaning within is to discover that one is living a quite wonderful life. To love God with one’s whole being and to love others who are also children of God, is to discover life in its fullness. It is indeed an abundant life.

What the World Needs Now  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 22: 34–46
Matthew 22: 34–40 for LFM
Summary: The whole law, says Jesus, is fulfilled in self-giving love, agapē. Jesus thus shows his agreement with the basic traditions of Israel and also points forward to his own passion, death and resurrection. We are invited to accept his righteousness, his perfect fulfillment of the law of love, as our own.
