The Mandate To Love God Completely Matthew 22:37-40 By Rev. Julio Orozco Jr.

Welcome to Grace Community Church  As we are still in the first days of the year, it is imperative that we get recalibrated, today Pastor Julio will be looking at the mandate to love God completely.


Some members of the Sanhedrin (Pharisees and Sadducees) tried to trap Jesus with tough questions concerning the Scripture on several occasions because they were jealous and resentful of him. They overlooked, however, that Jesus was the incarnate Word of God. He confounded them in their craftiness, and they had no choice but to keep quiet. The Sadducees had just asked Jesus for proof of the Resurrection (because they didn’t believe in it), and He had provided them with a satisfactory response. But, because they were so obstinate, they asked another question, this time about the greatest commandment, once again attempting to trap him. In today’s sermon, Reverend Julio Orozco will be looking at this account, the commandment  to love God completely and its implications for the believer.

PS: I’d like to invite you to like, share, and comment on the sermon on YouTube because it helps to spread it to people all over the world. This is excellent preaching, which the entire world needs to hear. Every Sunday, our pastor has faithfully brought the word to us, and it is only fitting that we do our part and share it with others.

The Mandate To Love God Completely

The Passage 

The Great Commandment

34 But when the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together. 35 And one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question to test him. 36 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” 37 And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the great and first commandment. 39 And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 40 On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”
