Following God’s lead, we are to love God and love others (Matt. 22:36-40). Paul calls followers of Christ in 1 Cor. 13 to lead people to Christ by showing Christ’s love to individuals. When it is asked why we live the way we do, we simply share our hope in Christ and His good news. We are called to love our neighbors regardless if they are or will ever become followers of Christ.
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.’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Matthew 22:36-40
