Matthew 22:39

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 39 And the second is like it, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' [Unless you have hated your life, and gone to the Lord to wait on Him and obey Him until your selfish human spirit has been crucified, it is impossible to love your neighbor as yourself. Any other supposed way is deception. Man is a fallen, selfish creature, and until a man has been restored to the image of God's righteousness and holiness, he does not even understand what love is. Your defiled heart must first be cleansed through obedience on the inward cross of self-denial to love your neighbor as yourself.]
