This is My commandment, love each other in the same way I have loved you (John 15:12).
This sentence set my mind off in a number of tangents. If we are supposed to love as He loved us, that means our love must be unconditional. We can love our babies unconditionally, but what about those, even other believers, who we consider unlovable? Or those who treat us poorly or unfairly?
Christ gave up His life physically for us. He set an example of setting His own human needs aside to do what was necessary to demonstrate ultimate love. Can we follow Him, even in a small way, by putting our comfort aside in order to love as He loved?
One way to start can be found in Galatians: Therefore whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone, especially those in the family of faith.
As Matthew Henry says, we should make this the business of our lives…when the occasions arise…as far as our power reaches.
