Love One Another

“A new command I give you: … As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” John 13:34

By offering a command here, Jesus did not focus on the feeling of love, but on the decision to love. Jesus knew that we would not always feel like loving each other, so he commanded it. Love is first a decision, not an emotion.

But a command to love is not easy to obey. That’s why it’s good news to hear that this is a “new command.” What’s new is that Jesus has given us a model for this love through his own ministry. We are to love, Jesus says, “as I have loved you.” In his love for us, Jesus was willing to die for us. In community with him, we discover the power to love sacrificially too.

Why is now the best time to express love? Because you don’t know how long you’re going to get the opportunity to do it. Circumstances change. People die. Children grow up and leave home.

You’re not guaranteed a tomorrow. If you’re going to express love, you’d better do it now. - Rick warren

God Bless you!
