"A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another." - John 13 V34, 35
"Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things." - 1 Corinthians 13 V4, 5, 6, and 7
True love is selfless and unconditional and demands nothing in return. We are commanded by our Lord to love one another. No one is perfect except our Lord Jesus Christ, so we should forget all our differences and uphold and encourage each other. Our Lord displayed His true love for us by dying for us. He did not ask anything in return from us except to follow Him. Love is the greatest gift to us from God and we see the perfect example of love in our Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ loved us not because we are lovable, but because He is love. Praise the Lord!
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
