The Ultimate Love

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

As followers of Jesus, the Love of God needs to illuminate within us. When we walk around claiming we love Jesus, people need to see the love of Jesus through us. We are called to love one another.

First, we must love ourselves. In order to love yourself, you need to experience the love of God. A love so strong that he gave his only son. If we all loved everyone with that kind of love, the world would be a better place and war would cease to exist.

Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it. Hebrews 13:2 NIV
What an amazing concept! When you show hospitality to strangers, it is exercising the love of Christ within you and other people. You could actually be showing hospitality to angels. Later on in the Chapter, we read:

And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. Hebrews 13:16 

We live in a selfish world. When we do for others and share, we show that love of Christ in us and it pleases God. God loves us. He wants us. We need him.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 NIV
