Teach the way of God in accordance with the truth. Mark 12

Jesus Christ, Son of God, came to this realm to walk as a Son of Man.   He came “that we might have life, and have it abundantly”.  John 10:10

 He was the perfect man in every sense.  Father God allowed Him to take our imperfections upon His body, and His soul, and in turn allowed the Holy Spirit to give us His perfection to grow into when we accepted who He was by faith.

The Lord Jesus came to show us the love of our Father in a tangible way.  As the Apostle John wrote, ” We have heard Him. We have seen Him with our eyes,. We have touched Him with our hands” 1 John 1: 1,2. He was real flesh and blood.  He was the ‘real deal’.
Only He could have done what He did for mankind.  Only love could have inspired Him to do it.
While He was here, He taught us many things, and He taught us ‘how’ to teach as we carry on His work of love.
Though they were trying to trip Him up for their own schemes, one of the Pharisees said to Him, “Teacher, we know you are a man of integrity.  You aren’t swayed by men, because you pay no attention to who they are: but you teach ‘the way of God’ in accordance with truth.” Mark 12:14
The way of God is love.  He asked us to Love Him.  Not because He has to have someone to worship Him,  He wants us to be in Him to receive His unconditional love, and power.  Just as a branch needs to be attached to the tree to grow and become, we must be attached to God for the same reasons.   The Way of God is to love others, as we love ourselves.   We are to love ourselves in grace (unmerited favor), and mercy, and to love others in the same way.  This is the way of God because this brings a life of peace and prosperity. This is truth.
Clearly, there is no mention of loving someone because they deserve to be loved, or because of what they can do for us, or because they believe what we believe, or because they are the same race, color, or creed.  There are no conditions.  We are to pay no attention as to who they are, but rather what they are.  They are simply a person who needs to be loved.  This is the way of God.  Let us walk in His Way.  Jesus said, ” I am the Way the Truth, and the Life.”
May you prosper, and be in good health, my Friends, even as your soul prospers.
