“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.” John 13:34

All the commandments of God are commandments of love, tending to our real good and great happiness; far from being grievous to those who have faith and love, the practice thereof is life and peace. The world may think it a grievous burden — but this is a great mistake. Sin is grievous.

In hatred, envy, anger, revenge, pride, there is nothing but torment and slavery; but love produces rest and pleasure. Thus a sinner always punishes himself and is robbed of peace and many blessings by disobeying the commandments of God. In this new commandment, he finds the spirit of the whole Decalogue — love to God, love to man, perfect love which casts out fear. In commanding love, Jesus commands us to be like Himself. He was love personified. His life was love illustrated. His heart was love’s best dwelling-place. Love is holiness. Love is happiness.

Holy Spirit, write this new commandment on my heart, and give me grace to carry it out in my family, in Your Church, and in the world! O to love others, as Jesus loves me!
