“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” (John 13:34–35, NIV)
Ever wonder where Paul got the idea of the importance of love, which he writes about in 1 Corinthians 13?
Would “Love one another” be considered a new command today? Why or why not?
Jesus says that when we understand the love he has for us, it changes the way we love others. In what ways have you seen this to be the case? Is it far to say if you do not love, you do not know Jesus’ love?
Why do Christians find it so easy to use almost anything except love to identify themselves as such? How can love more in order to identify ourselves more successfully as followers of Jesus?
