Loves In Command

8 Reply to “ Loves In Command ”

  1. Tohn says:
    The command for believers to love each other in the New Testament—the command for how we are to relate to each other in the body of Christ—is not merely that we bless those who curse or that we return good for evil, or that we pray for those who treat us badly .
  2. Gukree says:
    Jesus coupled the command to love your neighbor as yourself with loving God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength. James calls it the royal law. It sounds beautiful, and it is when we obey it.
  3. Zulugor says:
    Love in the Bible, as in our everyday usage, can be directed from person to person or from a person to things. When directed toward things, love means enjoying or taking pleasure in those things. Love towards persons is more complex.
  4. Zulkisar says:
    In context, this command also meant loving those of another faith. A great example of this kind of love towards strangers is the kindness initially shown by Boaz to Ruth when the Moabites come to glean in his fields. Romans “Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good.
  5. Faesida says:
    The command to love was part of that message you have heard. What made the command new when Jesus gave it was not its content. The Old Testament contains the command to love one's neighbor (Lev ), and Jesus quotes it in some of the Gospels (Mt ; ; Lk ). Neither does Jesus have in mind a new kind of love or a new expression.

    Jul 27,  · “Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him.” (John ) If you keep Jesus’ commandments you will abide in Jesus’ love.
  8. Brasho says:
    Mar 10,  · "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another" (John ). Jesus used the word agape for love when issuing the command. This love is to love like God loves.
