The greatest commandment, your basis for your life’s journey.
“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. This is my command: Love each other.” (John 15:9-17)
God is love.
The Father loved Jesus, yet He gave His only Son to die for our sins because He also loved us and calls us His friends and not servants. Jesus said there is no greater love than to lay down your life for a friend. God’s greatest command is to love each other with no conditions, but in order to do this consistently, we need to experience the Father’s love by accepting Jesus as our Savior. We can only give love when we know that we are loved by God.
This book is all about the love of God.
