Jesus A Gospel Of Love: After Jesus speedily got rid of Satan in chapter four verse ten by quoting the Word of God as spoken by the prophets, “Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God and Him only shalt thou serve.” Satan got the point and left Jesus. Then angels came and ministered unto Him and He began His ministry in Galilee preaching “Repent, for the kingdom of Heaven is at hand” Jesus came in preaching about a kingdom. He also said it was at hand, or, within your reach, here and now. That kingdom Jesus was talking about could only be received and entered into by repenting. Repenting of what? Sin? What was considered sin to Jesus? Anything that was against God’s commandment is a sin in the eyes of God. What was God’s Commandment?
Deuteronomy 6:5 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
6 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:
7 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
8 And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.
9 And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.
Matthew 22:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
Jesus went on to hold a meeting up on a mountain with His disciples in chapters 5-7 where you can read it all instead of me quoting the whole thing here, but I will mention the key parts where Jesus is trying to drive home the message of Love. Love was His message the whole time He was here on this Earth. Loving God and your neighbor, and to show us how to do it was His mission. John 3:16 says “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Jesus was preaching God’s Love and that the only way to enter into eternal life was to receive this love from God, but believing in Him and God’s love for them. That means to repent of the evil deeds people were doing which was all of the unloving things that hurt others.
