The Great Commandment

May 9, 2021 • Grant Hickman • LukeSeason 5

The Great Commission is an invitation to us from God. It is not an invitation for us to be the stars of the show, but rather an invitation for us to join the work that God is already doing on the earth. Over the next few weeks, as we discover more about the Great Commission (Jesus’ call to go and make disciples), we will look at a Great Commandment, the Great Commission, and an invitation to a Great Collaboration. But all of that starts here with God’s command to love our neighbors and an understanding of who our neighbor is.

Luke: The Great Commandment (Luke 10:25-29)- Grant Hickman


Deuteronomy 6:4-5

Hear, O Israel: The LORD is our God, the LORD is one! You must love the LORD your God with all of your heart, and all your soul, and all your strength.

Luke 10:25-27

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

Luke 10:28-29

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

Luke 10:29 (MSG)

Looking for a loophole, he asked, “And just how would you define ‘neighbor’?

Where are your loopholes?
