H134 - LOVE AS I HAVE LOVED YOU - JOHN 13:34
"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another." - John 13:34
To love others was not a new commandment (Leviticus 19:18) but to love others as much as Christ loved others was revolutionary. Now we are to love others based on Jesus' sacrificial love for us. Such love will not only bring unbelievers to Christ; it will also keep believers strong and united in a world hostile to God. Jesus was a living example of God's love, as we are to be living examples of Jesus' love.
