This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. John 15:12
Gods commands us to Love one another as Christ has loved us. How did Jesus love us? He loved us enough to lay down his life for us. Do you love your neighbor enough to do that? Most of us won’t even say hello to our neighbor let alone lay down our life for them.
Why do we resist to love others? Because there is nothing in it for me? They hurt me? It’s easy for us to come up with reasons for hate but it’s not easy to Love one Another as God has commanded us.
(John 15:13) “Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”
The worlds view on Love are “feeling” people feel like there in love. But true love is much deeper than a feeling it’s action. When somebody truly loves you they will take care of you when you’re sick, lift you up when everyone pushes you down, stand by your side thru thick and thin.
No greater love was displayed than Jesus laid down his life for us at the Cross. You can question God on many things but you can’t question whether he loves you, there is no greater love than Jesus.
(Mark 12:30-31) “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”
When Jesus was asked what are the greatest commandments , he answered Love God with all your heart and Love your Neighbor as yourself. Are you getting the pattern? Love , Love, Love..
Hatred is unacceptable to God and those who claim to be Christians and still hate are false and really don’t know God. Hatred is a cancer that will consume you and everyone around you, it will destroy live and not prosper them. I ask that we call unto Jesus to fill our hearts and souls to Love One Another as Jesus loved us Amen
