Then one of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, and saying, “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?” Jesus said to him, “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 the Law and the Prophets. MATTHEW 22:35-40
Humans are created to relate – first to our Creator and then with others. God stated it clearly: “It is not good for us to be alone” (Genesis 2:18). Intimacy is God’s answer to aloneness. And this provision of intimacy can be met through family, friendships, and a personal relationship with Him. These relationships are God’s sacred plan for intimacy.
Pray for believers on campus to continually put God as their first priority, seeking Him above all other things in their lives. Pray for churches and ministries to exemplify Christ’s love by preferring one another above themselves. Pray for God’s people to return to the priority of pursuing a relationship with Him and with one another.
