If you had to explain the Gospel in just one word, it could be the word “relationship.”
When Jesus was asked what the greatest commandment was, His response spoke about relationship, with God, with self, and with others.
‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all of Law and the Prophets. Matthew 22:37-40 (NKJV)
