The initial basis – the starting point – the beginning of all discipleship must be the Great Command and the Great Commission (which you will read about in the third booklet in the Discipleship series).
These are the fundamental basics of discipleship – as Jesus says in answer to the religious leaders of the day, when they ask, “which is the first commandment of all?” By the first commandment, they meant, which is the most important commandment of all? To this Jesus answered:
“And you shall love the Lord Your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. This is the first commandment.”
“And the second, like it, is this: You shall love your neighbour as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:31-32 (NKJV)
Love Your Neighbour is the second in a series of booklets produced by Misfits Ministries – reaching the lost, the least, the lonely and the lepers. The author shows you how – practically – you can love your neighbour, just as Jesus did.
Proceeds from the sale of this booklet go to support Misfits Ministries manifest mercy and mission –
