Loving Beyond Self
The speaker reminds us of Jesus’ command for us to love one another in John 13:34-35. It is not a suggestion or a hope for us to act in such a way, but is something that Christ requires of us. “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.” (Jn 13:34-35)
The love that Christ suggests is not just a feeling or emotion, but a practical choice and action to give up our own rights in favour of others.
