About this Episode

In this episode of "In the Word, On the Go," historian, preacher, and executive director of the Baptist Convention of Maryland/Delaware, Kevin Smith, reminds us how God intends us to live out both the command to love God and to love people. Commenting on Matthew 22:40, Kevin says, "There are too many parts of Christianity that want to love God and do not see the people around them. Or conversely, others are about people and don't care about doctrine and the doxological component. We need to lean in to both: loving God and loving neighbor. It's not either/or."

"In the Word, On the Go" is sponsored by the Christian Standard Bible.
