How to Love Like Jesus

This is My commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you.
(John 15:12)

As children of God, you and I are commanded to live and show the kind of love we see modeled by our heavenly Father and His Son. And exactly how has Jesus loved us? And what does the kind of love we’re supposed to extend to people look like? We find answers to these questions when we turn to God and His Word. After all, God is love and God is the source of all love! He calls us to:

Walk in love (Ephesians 5:2)

Love one another (John 15:12)

Love our husbands and our children (Titus 2:4)

Love our neighbor (Matthew 22:39)

Love our enemies (Luke 6:27)

Scripture also teaches that “God is love” (1 John 4:8) and that God’s Son Jesus Christ loved us and “gave Himself up for us [as] an offering” (Ephesians 5:2). We also see love’s supremacy when Paul places it first on his list of the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22).

Who needs your love—God’s love—today?

Power in Prayer

There are few things that can change a marriage the way prayer can. While I was an associate pastor, a couple came to my office for marriage counseling. After we pinpointed several areas of concern in their marriage that needed their attention, I asked the husband to commit the couple’s desires to the Lord. As the man finished praying, I looked up to discover that his wife was crying. She explained through her tears that this was the first time in ten years of marriage that they had prayed together as a couple!

The Savior of the world certainly came to earth in an unexpected way. He came as a servant of God to sacrifice himself for us. It wasn’t immediately apparent to others that Jesus was the Messiah, the King, they were waiting for.
