Christian Love

In Verse 34b of our Bible Reading today, Jesus told His disciples, “You must love each other just as I have loved you.” When Christians love each other, they are helpful and forgiving and they pray for each other. They also want the best for each other.
Why is it important for Christians to love each other? First, in verse 34, Jesus commanded us to love each other. The second reason is found in verse 35. “All people will know that you are my followers if you love each other.” When Christians love each other, they help unsaved people know about Jesus’ love.
Jesus talked about a third reason for loving each other in Matthew 5:44a. Jesus said, “…love your enemies.” If we don’t love our Christian brothers and sisters, we will never be able to love our enemies.
Jesus’ words are very important. I hope you will pay attention to His words and show love for other Christians today.
