Great Commission as Counterpart to Great Commandment
|August 29, 2012||Posted by Rick Hogaboam under Evangelism, Missional Thought|
From Michael Green in his commentary on Matthew:
Moreover, the Great Commission is the counterpart of the great commandment to love God and neighbour. Without that, evangelism will be cold and hard. It will alienate rather than attract. It will not embody the spirit of heaven, where love is the universal language.
