13 Times the Bible Commands Us to “Love One Another”

“Love One Another”

“A new commandment I give unto you, That ye LOVE ONE ANOTHER; as I have loved you, that ye also LOVE ONE ANOTHER.” John 13:34

“This is my commandment, That ye LOVE ONE ANOTHER, as I have loved you.” John 15:12

“These things I command you, that ye LOVE ONE ANOTHER.” John 15:17

“Owe no man any thing, but to LOVE ONE ANOTHER: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.” Romans 13:8

“But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to LOVE ONE ANOTHER.” 1 Thessalonians 4:9

“Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye LOVE ONE ANOTHER with a pure heart fervently:” 1 Peter 1:22

“For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should LOVE ONE ANOTHER.” 1 John 3:11

“And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and LOVE ONE ANOTHER, as he gave us commandment.” 1 John 3:23

“Beloved, let us LOVE ONE ANOTHER: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.” 1 John 4:7

“Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to LOVE ONE ANOTHER.” 1 John 4:11

“No man hath seen God at any time. If we LOVE ONE ANOTHER, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.” 1 John 4:12

“And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we LOVE ONE ANOTHER.” 2 John 5

“Love one another” – These are the words of God. Speak them saints!

When we “love one another”, that is, when we love the body of Christ, we demonstrate that we have “passed from death unto life” and are truly born again. This is the clear proof that a person is in Christ, truly. Watch this:

“We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.” 1 John 3:14

Those who do not love the children of God do not know God who “is love.”

True love always respects and esteems others. Prayerfully read 1 Corinthians 13 regularly. God’s love dwelling in us was demonstrated in Christ who esteemed the Father and us above Himself as He came and died on the cross for our sin (Philippians 2:3-5). Love never looks down on anyone! If you disdain or disrespect someone, you do not have the love of God in you and are in need of fresh, true repentance. | Fresh Start with God

ANYONE who doesn’t love the body of Christ proves they are not part of it! 1 John 5:1

IF you are not loving the body of Christ – if you don’t have time to be bothered with Jesus’ people for whom He died, you are a self-serving counterfeit and do not know Him and are a lost soul. Repent now.

“Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.” 1 John 5:1

Jesus taught us to love God and love others – and not to love self. Those who teach you to love yourself are reading into the text of Scripture. There are only 2 commands in Matthew 22:37-39, not three. “Beware of false prophets.” (Matthew 7:15; 24:11, etc.)

False leaders today have people preoccupied with loving themselves instead of loving God and others. Run.

Self love is innate and so it takes no effort (Ephesians 5:28). The daily cross, the crucified life alone brings the resurrection life of Christ and His hope, love, and confidence – It produces the fruit of loving God and others, not self. Those who teach people to love themselves are lying false teachers with no exception. Jesus and His holy apostles taught to love God and others above self. Yet wolves among us speak more of loving self, something the LORD never told us to do in His Word. Philippians 2:1-3 says:

“Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. 4 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. 5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:” Philippians 2:3-5

Poring prayerfully over the above passage each morning this week will change your life.

Jesus taught us to “deny” and not promote, esteem, or love self (Luke 9:23-24, etc.). You must understand the cross, the cross message He taught.

Reading the Love Chapter, 1 Corinthians 13 ,refreshes in us the revelation of how important it is to walk in God’s love – to be crucified with Christ and raised up in His love!

1 Corinthians 13 – God’s Love in Us Via the Cross, the Crucified Life

1  Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
2  And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
3  And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
4  Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
5  Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
6  Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
7  Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
8  Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
9  For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
10  But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
11  When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
12  For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
13  And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

PRAYER: Father, in the name of Jesus, please help us to love You with our whole hearts and to treat others as we would have others treat us (Matt 22:37-40).
