What Jesus teaches about Love


Have you ever pondered the sheer depth and breadth of God’s love? Jesus invites us into a beautiful journey of understanding and experiencing love in ways we may never have imagined. As followers of Christ, we are called to embody His love in our everyday lives. This isn’t always easy, especially when facing life’s challenges, but it is in those moments that His teaching about love shines the brightest. So, let’s dive deep into what Jesus teaches us about love and how we can fully embrace and reflect this divine love in our lives.

Imagine a world where love is the prevailing force – guiding our actions, shaping our words, and touching the hearts of everyone we meet. That’s the world Jesus envisions and urges us to create. You’re not alone in this journey. Together, through the wisdom in the Scriptures and the power of His love, we can make this vision a part of our daily walk. Let’s embark on this enlightening path with open hearts and eager spirits.

Bible Verse

John 13:34-35 (NIV)

“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.”


The verse from John 13:34-35 beautifully encapsulates the essence of Jesus’ teaching on love. As He prepared His disciples for His impending departure, He left them with this profound commandment – to love one another just as He has loved them. This isn’t just a suggestion or a casual approval of affection. It is a commandment that comes with transformative power.

To “love as I have loved you” means to love unconditionally, sacrificially, and endlessly. It’s a love that breaks barriers, transcends faults, and forgives endlessly. Jesus’ love is inclusive and embracing, a beacon of hope and warmth that reaches into the darkest corners. When Jesus says that this love will signify that we are His disciples, He denotes that true discipleship is inherently connected to how we love others.

Loving as Jesus loves means we don’t measure or limit our love based on conditions or expectations. It means stepping forward in kindness, mercy, and grace even when it’s challenging. This radical love becomes our identifier, marking us as followers of Christ to the world around us.

Actions to Take

1. Practice unconditional kindness: Do something kind for someone without expecting anything in return.

2. Forgive: Extend forgiveness to someone who has wronged you, reflecting the grace Jesus showed.

3. Serve others: Find tangible ways to serve in your community or church, embodying Christ’s servant heart.

4. Pray for others: Make it a habit to pray for the well-being and needs of others, even those who may not be close to you.

5. Share your love story: Testify about how God’s love has impacted your life, inspiring and encouraging others.
