Our salvation has freed us, not to serve ourselves and our own desires, but, to serve one another in love. The whole law of God is summed up as “Love your neighbor as you love yourself” (Galations 5:13-14).
If we love God as we should, we will love our neighbors as we should. We will care for and help the hungry, the thirsty, the stranger, the naked, the sick and the incarcerated. We will perceive every need that our neighbor has as if we have that need ourselves. If we refuse to help our neighbors we refuse to help Christ (Matthew 25:44-45).
