This is what it means to love one another in Our Heavenly Father!

 

 

Awesome and Powerful Master Teacher, You are Our TEACHER!!!:

 

In John 13:34 Jesus taught, “A New Command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” Then He added, “By this everyone will know that you are my disciples if you love one another” How do we do this? What does it mean to love one another?

 

The “One another” in these verses is a reference to fellow believers. A distinguishing mark of being a follower of Christ is a deep, sincere love for brothers and sisters in Christ. The Apostle John reminds us of this fact elsewhere: “He has given us this command: Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister” (1 John 4:21).

 

In giving this command, Jesus did something the world had never seen before, He created HIS SPIRITUAL FAMILY identified by one thing: love. There are many Religions in the world, and they identify themselves in any number of ways: by skin color, by uniform, by shared interest, your alma mater, etc. One Religion has tattoos and piercings; other Religions abstains from meat; yet another Religion wears no makeup for women, and the women wear only dresses, the ways people categorize themselves are endless. But the Church is unique. For the first and only time in history, Jesus created His loving family whose identifying factor is love. Skin color doesn’t matter. Native language doesn’t matter. There are no rules about diet or uniforms or wearing funny hats. Followers of Christ are identified by their love for each other.

 

The early Church FAMILY demonstrated the type of love Jesus was talking about. There were Believers in Jerusalem from all over the known world ( Acts 2:9–11 ). Those who were saved got together and immediately began meeting each other’s needs: “All the Believers were together and had everything in Common. They sold extra property and possessions to give to anyone who had needed in the Church that Jesus Christ Himself Birth and Built” ( Acts 2:44–45 ). This was love in action, and you can be sure it made an impression on the people of the city of Jerusalem.

 

Jesus’ statements in John 13:34–35 raise a couple of other questions that may be good to answer. First, how does Jesus love? He loves unconditionally ( Romans 5:8 ), sacrificially ( 2 Corinthians 5:21 ), with forgiveness ( Ephesians 4:32 ), and eternally ( Romans 8:38–39 ). At the same time, Jesus’ love is holy, characterized by transcendent moral purity, because He is holy ( Hebrews 7:26 ). The culmination of Christ’s amazing love for us is His death on the cross, burial, and bodily resurrection (1 John 4:9–10 ). Believers are to love each other like this. But, why do you help and support everyone else, But never think of helping and supporting me?

 

Yes, how then can the Believer in Christ love as Christ loved? The Believer in Christ has the Holy Spirit living within him and her (1 Corinthians 6:19–20). By obeying the Spirit, through the Word of God, the Believer can love as Christ does. He shows that unconditional, sacrificial, forgiving love to fellow believers, but it doesn’t stop there. He also shows the love of Christ to friends, to family members, to coworkers, etc. ( Ephesians 5:18–6:4;) ( Galatians 5:16, 22–23 ). Even enemies are the recipients of Christ’s love (Read Matthew 5:43–48). Okay, my brothers and sisters in the Lord.

 

Christ’s love displayed through the believer is unlike the “love” generated by the flesh, which can be selfish, egotistical, unforgiving, and insincere. First Corinthians 13:4–8 gives a wonderful description of what Christ’s love will be like in and through the believer who walks in the Spirit.

 

People don’t naturally love with a 1 Corinthians 13-Biblical Love. To love like that, there must be a change of heart. A Child of God must realize that he and she was a sinner before God and understand that Christ died on the cross and rose again to provide them forgiveness; then he and she must make the decision to accept Christ as their personal Savior. At this point they are forgiven by Christ and receives God’s gift of eternal life, in fact, We become a participant in the divine nature ( 2 Peter 1: 4. In Christ, We know that We are genuinely loved by God. The new life the believer receives includes a new capacity to love like Christ loves, for the believer now has to live within him the unconditional, sacrificial, forgiving, eternal, and holy love of God ( Romans 5:5 ).

 

To love one another is to love fellow believers as Christ loves us. Those who love like Christ in the Holy Spirit’s power will give evidence that they are disciples, and believers and followers, of Jesus Christ. Amen.
