"Love the Lord your God" in the Bible: Matthew 22:36-40
The Old Testament contains many laws and rules, the most famous being the Ten Commandments. But Jesus said that all of those rules boiled down to two things: love God with all your heart, and love your neighbor as yourself. If our adherence to rules or commandments isn't producing these two things, we've missed the entire point.
Greatest commandment - a Christian perspective
Jesus was once asked what he thought was the greatest commandment. He replied that it was to love God with all your heart, soul and mind. He said that it was the greatest and the first commandment. From it we can extrapolate the rest of Christianity.
