Scot McKnight is making famous "the Jesus Creed" which simply means the creed or way of life Jesus espoused, to love God with our all, and to love our neighbor as ourselves.
I have a paper I carry around in my work daily, and the first part of it is "the Jesus Creed". After that is Scripture, the Lord's prayer, and the prayer of the week I post on Sundays from the collect of each day for that week from the Book of Common Prayer.
I go over this several times a day, and it is becoming more and more meaningful to me and seems to be seeping into my heart and bones so at least I recognize that it's there. I do think it keeps me in check at times, at other times it helps get me back on track, and even at other times I begin to feel it in my heart, wanting it to be worked out in my life. I'm testifying here much the same as Scot has, of which mine is a faint echo. I find going over this several times a day, day after day on weekdays (I want to do better on weekends) to at least be a good exercise for me.
Read the book, The Jesus Creed: Loving God, Loving Others. It's a great read in this way of life and one of those books that deserves to be reread from time to time (I consider it a classic), and most importantly, the truth in it to become more and more a part of us and of our lives.
