A. The law of God tells me.^1

Q & A 4

Q. What does God’s law require of us?

A. Christ teaches us this in summary in Matthew 22ā€”

Love the Lord your God
with all your heart
and with all your soul
and with all your mind
and with all your strength.^1^*
This is the first and greatest commandment.

And the second is like it:
Love your neighbor as yourself.^2

All the Law and the Prophets hang
on these two commandments.

^1 Deut. 6:5
^2 Lev. 19:18
