The Sum of the Law and the Prophets:
Just Ask of Yourself Always:
What Does Love Require of Me?
The Daily Walk with Miracles, republished with additions May 5, 2017, by Paul Evans, courtesy of Brand: New | What Love Requires | Andy Stanley, Saving Truth and YouTube – 42:12. This article is important theologically and I plan on republishing it often.
Jesus said very signifantly that the sum of the law and the prophets Hangs on just these two commandments, to LOVE GOD and LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR as YOURSELF. And our video speaker today, Andy Stanley teaches with extraordinary significance, that with all people and in all circumstances, in our reactions you MUST always ask yourself, “what does love require of me?”
This IS “the Jesus Model.” It’s far simpler in practice, but it asks far more of us than any other way or model of Christianity. This is a lot like the old catch phrase, “what would Jesus do?” Shot through the New Testament, as in Galatians 5:14, is the incredible teaching that loving your neighbor as yourself is loving God. Rev. Stanley tells us that what is pervasive in Christianity is what he calls “the Temple model” of legalism and intricate rules, but that living as a true Christian requires that we drop our ego altogether and live by this “Jesus Model.” Really, our egos are just false constructs that we develop “in the world,” but we are all One already, it’s only that we need to stop being egocentric altogether. The best way to do this, he says, is to always ask ourselves, “what does love require of me?” Sometimes, as Jesus taught, “my burden is easy and my yoke is light,” which is mostly my own situation these days, although I do remember homelessness. Other times this evil world throws us to the wolves, but we must behave in this world by reacting somewhat according to the “Jesus model.” Amen.

See Existentialsm 101: You Are an Existentialist (But Didn’t Know It), republished May 6, 2017, by Paul Evans: In terms of “the golden rule,” there are those who think it might not be the very best way to base an ethical system, because people are at different levels of awareness and knowledge, whereas the golden rule assumes everyone is the same. What might be better is what is called “The Platinum Rule:” Do unto others as they need from you, which allows tough love more easily. Sometimes people need different responses, including tough love, because they are at different places in their life’s journey. You have to put in the effort to get to know a person and “get into their head a little, evaluate where a person is coming from and where his/her head is at, and then try to give them what they need, not what you would do for yourself. This is an important realization. THAT is what love requires of you.
