Jesus summed up the core activities of God’s Kingdom this way: we are to love God and love others.

This is referred to as the Great Commandment. We are follow Jesus as His disciples, learning how to live His Kingdom way of life. We are also instructed to make disciples by teaching others to do the same. This is called the Great Commission. The pairing of the Great Commandment and the Great Commission is the Irreducible Core of God’s Kingdom.

As followers of Jesus, we can do more than these commands but we cannot do less.
