Jesus’ Commands

What does it mean to love someone? If we really love someone, we will help them and forgive them. But sometimes it is hard to love other people.
In verse 34b of our Bible Reading Jesus commanded, “Love each other. You must love each other just as I loved you.” In Mark 12:31 Jesus commanded: “Love your neighbor the same as you love yourself.” And, Jesus said in Matthew 5:44 that we should love our enemies.
Jesus makes it very clear. He does not give us a choice. Jesus didn’t say that we can choose to love people or not. He said we must love each other.
First, we need to show love to other Christians. Second, we need to show God’s love by loving people who are not Christians. And third, we need to love our enemies and help them find Jesus.
I hope you will obey Jesus’ commands today and love all people.
