Love one another

John 13:34a
A new command I give you. Love one another.

This is the foundation to any enduring relationship. We are commanded to LOVE! Love is not a noun, it is a verb. You need to “do” love in order to “feel” love.

Love is actually a form of spiritual warfare: We’ve been trying to use God’s authority to get the upper hand over the devil, while Jesus used His authority to treat people with love and mercy. You have to lay your life down to be willing to give someone mercy who doesn’t deserve it. It’s the mercy of God that draws people to repentance. Jesus just came to show us what we’ve got to do. God only asks a willing heart. God will be gracious and willing to teach you how to do it.
