What Jesus teaches about Love


We often hear that "love makes the world go ’round," but what does that really mean for us as followers of Jesus? Have you been searching for the true essence of love in your life? You’ve come to the right place! Discover the depth of love Jesus taught us as we explore how it can transform not only our lives but also the lives of those around us.

Jesus’ teachings offer us a powerful and inspiring perspective on love that is different from what the world often presents. Here, we break down His insights so that you can bring more love into your everyday actions, words, and thoughts. Let’s dive in and learn to love more like Jesus.

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."


In this passage, Jesus delivers a straightforward yet profoundly impactful commandment: to love one another as He loved us. His love for us is boundless, unconditional, and sacrificial. He loved us so much that He laid down His life for our sins. Jesus isn’t just talking about any love; He’s calling us to embody a divine love.

This divine love is selfless, patient, and enduring. It seeks the well-being of others without expecting anything in return. It’s the kind of love that heals, forgives, and unites. When we practice this type of love, we show the world what it truly means to follow Jesus.

Moreover, Jesus points out that our love for one another is a testament to our discipleship. It’s not just about what we say or believe. Our actions must reflect the transformative power of God’s love in our lives. This authentic love sets us apart and serves as a witness to the transformative power of God’s grace.

Actions to Take

  • Practice Forgiveness: Release any grudges or resentments you’re holding. Let go and let God heal your heart.

  • Show Kindness: Acts of kindness, no matter how small, can make a big impact. Smile at a stranger, offer help to a neighbor, or simply listen to someone in need.

  • Pray for Others: Set aside time each day to pray for friends, family, and even those who may have wronged you.

  • Serve Selflessly: Look for opportunities to volunteer your time and resources. Love in action is powerful and life-changing.

  • Encourage Daily: Send out a word of encouragement to someone every day through a text, call, or handwritten note.
