The apostle John writes of Christ’s final lesson to the disciples before His death.
John 13:34 [Jesus said] “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.” (NASB)
It’s the last supper with Jesus and the disciples . . . Judas has just left to betray the Savior: imagine Jesus leaning forward and summing up the 10 commandments with a new commandment — “love one another”. Most everyone believes love will make the world a better place — but how do you make that happen? Jesus says, “as I have loved you, you should love each other.” But again, how does Christ’s love change the way we love?
Perhaps an example from science will help: if you leave a piece of metal in contact with a magnet . . . over time that metal will acquire magnetic qualities. As a Christ-follower, determine to stay close to Him: living in obedience, reading His Word, and communicating with Him in prayer. Over time . . . you will begin to love like Christ!
