The Great Commandment/Commission Go Hand in Hand

I'd have to say I'm often guilty of taking my own salvation for granted. I think many American Christians, myself included, are so wrapped up with their own personal lives and personal relationship with God that we neglect to fulfill the great commandment and the great commission. I used to think of the two as separate, yet they are simultaneous. If I truly love God and my neighbor then I will not keep the greatest news in the world from my neighbor. I will search out ways to make Christ known both in word and in deed. The best way for me to show God's love is to spread God's love. My prayer is that I will not be guilty of writing empty words in this post but will back it up by practicing what I preach.
