36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
Breaking the first two commandments makes you the greatest sinner,breaking these commandments makes you a sinners.
Christians often emphasize on reading the bible,coming to church.
But Love is the greatest commandment, that should be kept.
But here’s the twist in the blog
Luke 7 37:50
37 A woman in that town who lived a sinful life learned that Jesus was eating at the Pharisee’s house, so she came there with an alabaster jar of perfume. 38 As she stood behind him at his feet weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears. Then she wiped them with her hair, kissed them and poured perfume on them.
39 When the Pharisee who had invited him saw this, he said to himself, “If this man were a prophet, he would know who is touching him and what kind of woman she is—that she is a sinner.”
40 Jesus answered him, “Simon, I have something to tell you.”
“Tell me, teacher,” he said.
41 “Two people owed money to a certain moneylender. One owed him five hundred denarii,[c] and the other fifty. 42 Neither of them had the money to pay him back, so he forgave the debts of both. Now which of them will love him more?”
43 Simon replied, “I suppose the one who had the bigger debt forgiven.”
“You have judged correctly,” Jesus said.
44 Then he turned toward the woman and said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I came into your house. You did not give me any water for my feet, but she wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. 45 You did not give me a kiss, but this woman, from the time I entered, has not stopped kissing my feet. 46 You did not put oil on my head, but she has poured perfume on my feet. 47 Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven—as her great love has shown. But whoever has been forgiven little loves little.”
48 Then Jesus said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.”
49 The other guests began to say among themselves, “Who is this who even forgives sins?”
50 Jesus said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you; go in peace.”
Now you have read the story
47 Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven—as her great love has shown. But whoever has been forgiven little loves little.”
Jesus says the Women loved him more than Simon did. But the greatest law is love. By being forgiven more of her Sins, Did she not love God more. That means she became more Righteous.
So Can I not say Grace leads to Righteousness? Is Jesus not Holy!!
Even the enemy said he was the Holy one of God.
But what is grace really means : Grace means Unmerited favor
Grace from God means favor,actually from doing some bible search
found out Grace means unmerited favor.
Grace is an act of Love from God,
1 John 4:19
We love him, because he first loved us.
If we see it vice versa , we love God ,then God loves us , It becomes the law .
But we love him because he first love us.
How does he love us , by his unconditional favor .By receiving it through faith, we love him because he loves us . We end up fulfilling the greatest commandment Love. We become righteous.
So through Grace received by faith we become Righteous.
