John 13:34-35 New International Version (NIV)
34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
Love is just a feeling to many, but that is not the truth. To be loved is the greatest of all feeling. Through His life and ministry Jesus stressed the important of loving one another. It is hard to love if it’s not getting back or it’s hard to love someone who is not worthy to be loved. But Jesus extended the meaning of love by saying that “loves your enemy”.
There are various kinds to love; love between spouse, friends, parents and children, and so on. Jesus said “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. It should be evident that the command to love often requires displaying a true, heartfelt, affection towards another. If commanded, then it must be something we can develop where lacking. By the grace of God, we can be taught how to love. We cannot excuse the lack of heartfelt love toward people rather we need to acknowledge the deficiency and we need to be willing to relearn love.
