If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed 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.
The Lord doesn’t leave us in doubt regarding His commands. Obey them, and you will remain in my love. Then… He tells us what the commands are. My command is this: love each other as I have loved you.
Doesn’t that seem odd? One command? But this one covers it all. If we love one another as He did, we won’t: lie to one another, steal from one another, hurt each other, etc.
ONE command, and it covers everything. As we obey that command, we remain in His love, so our source of love is never ending. Give love away freely. Our source will never dry up.
