Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
Think of how these two commandments, given to believers in the New Covenant, exactly encapsulate and fulfill the Ten Commandments given to those who were operating under the Old Covenant.
The first commandment is very great and the second is reciprocal to the first. In loving God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind a person will naturally love his neighbor; therefore, such love will also be imparted to his family, his country, and the world.
The New Covenant commandments (there are only two) of love are superior to the Old Covenant commandments. They are positive, whereas the law was negative. In the New Covenant, the commandments of love are superior because they are complete by the finished work of Jesus Christ. They are superior because they begin at the heart and lead us directly to our need for the Holy Spirit to guide us in our Christian walk.
We must not love God only with the heart, but with the whole heart. The whole heart is opposed either to a divided and detached heart or to an inconsistent and an inactive heart. The whole heart is focused on the loving and pleasing God. It is our indispensable duty to love God. To love God is our great natural duty. Man would more naturally love God than himself, were it not for sin.
Loving God with our whole heart is impeded by self-love, love of the world, spiritual apathy and carelessness of spirit, the love of sinful behaviors whatsoever or a disproportionate love of things which are lawful.
The great guiding influence of the Christian life is to be our love for God and others. Unfortunately, Christians often spend so much time in following the traditions of men, man-made standards and religious rituals that they have little, or no, time to attend to anything else. There are only two requirements: love God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind and love thy neighbor as thyself. If you take care of that, everything else will take care of itself.

This paragraph posted at this web site is actually pleasant.
God has never made an ‘Old’ Covenant. It is the creation of man he exclusively uses as an excuse to throw out the Fourth Commandment. Had it not been for the Sabbath, no one ever would have dreamt up an ‘Old Covenant’ supposedly God’s.
The old covenant was Israel’s BREAKING his vow to obey God’s only and eternal New Covenant which God by his Holy Spirit through Jesus Christ had spoken from Horeb on the Seventh Day Sabbath OF THE LORD. Israel broke their covenanting vow as well as God’s, and WORSHIPPED the golden calf (symbolic) of the sun on the very day after God with the Finger of God the Holy Spirit breathed the Ten Commandments into tables of stone-hard hearts.
Israel of old worshipped no different than Sunday worshippers today with nice and sweet words and with jolly singing and dancing, justifying instead of admitting transgression and guilt. The worship of both the bygone and the current worship of the sun and its day, is open transgression and naked hatred of God’s Only Eternal Covenant of Love through Jesus Christ God’s Only Eternal WORD-OF-LAW. There is no dichotomy in God! The dichotomy and bigotry exist in man.
The ‘Old Covenant’ idea is not Christian; it is the firstborn twin of anti-Christ, paganism of Sunday Worship and Brotherly Hatred, clearly illustrated by the golden calve Israel worshipped immediately after God had spoken and with his Holy Spirit The Finger of God had cut his Law Principle of Love in unreceptive hearts of stone.
