Matthew: The MacArthur New Testament Commentary Chapter 32: The Great Commandment (22:34–40)

Those words perhaps gather up the sentiment of the world that the sweetest and most exhilarating of all emotions and experiences is love. In whatever age or with whatever group of people, it has been the almost universal belief that love is the greatest thing in life, the summum bonum, the virtue par excellence. Consequently, volumes upon volumes of poems, songs, plays, novels, and films have been produced about love.

God proved His love for us by sending Jesus (). Jesus loved us so much “in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
Love in the Bible is never gushy sentimentalism. Did you ever hear someone say, “I’d like to fall in love.” So, they go around wanting to fall in love. One day they say, “I love you.” What did they mean? You meant you tingled all over when you touched her—so she must be the one.
I’ve heard people say, “Oh, we just can’t wait to get married, we just tingle so bad.” A few months later they can’t stand to be in the same room with each other. “Oh, I must’ve married the wrong person because she doesn’t bring any love out of me.” Reason: there isn’t any love in you!
Love isn’t some tingle! Love is a commitment; it’s a willingness to sacrifice yourself for another.
A young lawyer came to Jesus one day to trick/tempt Him. . The secret to a happy life is having a loving, giving heart in 2 basic areas: 1) Love Jesus Christ, and 2) Love people.
