Love Each Other

Thought For The Week 120

Two young brothers hugging

Yahshua was uniquely qualified to make this command for He is the personification of love.  Utterly amazing, His love was disinterested, unselfish and unconditional.  Love reverberated through His entire life; it was remarkable in all His dealings with the lost, sick, helpless and searching.  It was even present in His denunciation of the hypocrisy of the religious leaders of His day, for in challenging He sought to change.  His love was immensely sacrificial, every act of service cost Him something (cp. Mark 5:30) and there seems no limit to the sacrifices He made during His lifetime.  His final sacrifice, the torture, crucifixion and death, worse than anything we can imagine, was totally on behalf of others; a princely act of bounteous love.

A beautiful old hymn which we sang in Junior School begins, “The King of love, my Shepherd is…” and this title has been a lifelong favourite; my King of Love!  As our King He brought us something the apostle James describes as ‘The Royal Law’ (James 2:8).  Yahshua was absolutely clear that all the Law and all the prophets hung on the principle of love. (Matthew 22: 36-40)  He told us clearly that He hadn’t come to destroy the Law but to fulfil it (Matthew 5:17) and He did this through His life of love.   

The Royal Law of Love stands alone in that if we embrace it with the selflessness of Yahshua we will find that our lives will fulfil all that Yahweh requires of us.  Where does it begin?  Simply love each other!

[Yahweh] always does what is good for us. If you believe that he gave his own Son for you, this is what you believe. And all of the Christian life is simply the fruit of that faith. Look to [Yahshua]. Look to the love of [Yahweh]. Live in love. And fear no more.
