How Did Jesus Love

4 Ways Jesus Modeled Love

What aspects of my life (words, acts, and decisions) should represent my connection with Christ and my pursuit of Him? It should be evident on the outside that someone who is living with God on the inside lives a life that reflects a distinct character on the inside (through words, decisions, and actions done in obedience to God). “Anyone who professes to live in him must live in the same way that Jesus did.” In 1 John 2:6, the Bible says The person of Jesus is the most perfect representation of God’s love for people that has ever been.

When it comes to Jesus, there is nothing we must do that He has not already demonstrated in His own person and life.

How did Jesus model Love and Service?

The Bible provides us with the following illustrations: Compassion: Jesus was a caring person to the extreme. We witness Him responding to the needs of those who are suffering again and over again, as follows:

  • He healed the sick and restored sight to the blind (Luke 7:21)
  • He liberated those who were enslaved by social injustice and prejudice (Mark 7:24-30
  • Luke 5:12-15
  • 7:36-50
  • 8:43-48
  • 10:38-42
  • 19:1-10)
  • He set free those who were under the control of demonic powers (Luke 4:33-35)
  • He was deeply loved (Matt 9:36
  • Mark 10:21
  • Luke 7:13

Respect: Jesus had a deep regard for all forms of life, regardless of their origin.

  • All life was respected by Jesus, and he showed this regard to everyone.

Jesus was an exceptional listener, as evidenced by his parables. Whether it was His opponents or His disciples, Jesus showed that he respected individuals by listening to them and responding carefully and patiently to their questions and concerns. Encouraged: Jesus spent a significant amount of time urging people to love one another. (See Luke 6:17-49 for more information.) Throughout Jesus’ whole life, the Beatitudes serve as a call to be receptive to God and to love others in the way that Jesus modeled.

When it comes to loving your neighbor as yourself, Jesus is the ultimate role model.

Because of Jesus, who is the perfect standard by which we should spend our lives.

As a consequence of our overflow and love for the Father (as well as our desire to conform to the character of Christ), we should live a life of service and love for others as well.

How can my life model Christ’s love?

According to 1 John 2:6, a life lived in Christ is a life filled with love and service to others. It is a ministry to the poor in which you listen to people in your midst, love them, support them, respect them, and assist them—especially those who are at the bottom of the social ladder. In our quest to live in relationship with Jesus, this is the heart of Jesus, and it should be our heart as well. When it comes to “living in Christ,” what does it look like in our modern world? Some examples from churches in Africa and Asia include the following: Providing access to water (3:21 video) Constructing a home (2:21 video) Construction of classrooms (2:40 video) Taking care of a widow (3:43 video) John Warden serves as the worldwide staff pastor for Reconciled World and as the facilitator for 2:10.

What It Looks Like to “Love One Another” as Jesus Loves Us

The Upper Room Discourse is a series of five chapters in the Gospel of John that are together referred to as the Upper Room Discourse. As He neared the end of his life, Jesus engaged in meaningful conversation with his disciples in order to prepare them for His death and resurrection, as well as to prepare them to proclaim the Gospel and form the church. As the thirteenth chapter opens, Jesus washes the feet of the disciples, goes on to prophesy his death and Peter’s denial, and teaches the disciples this radical commandment: “A new command I give you: Love one another.” The same way that I have loved you, you must also love one another” (John 13:34).

What Does “Love One Another as I Have Loved You” Mean?

Jesus was giving his followers a task that appeared to be insurmountable. So how could they possibly love others with the same kind of unconditional love that Jesus displayed over and over again? When Jesus spoke to a Samaritan lady, his followers were taken aback by his words (seeJohn 4:27). It’s possible that the twelve disciples were among a group of followers who attempted to keep youngsters from seeing Jesus by turning them away (seeMatthew 19:13). They had failed in their efforts to love others in the way that Jesus had loved them.

As a result of Jesus’ exhortation to love, the disciples would be empowered in a new way to demonstrate the same sort of love that Jesus had demonstrated — a love that comprised acceptance, forgiveness, and compassion – throughout the world.

Who Is Jesus Speaking to in This Verse?

In this passage, Jesus is addressing his followers directly. A little earlier in his career, Jesus had stated that the two greatest commandments were to love one another (see Matthew 26:36-40), with the second commandment being to love one’s neighbor. During another teaching session in the upper chamber with his followers, Jesus spoke on the importance of love. In fact, as Jesus continued to speak, he made it apparent that it would be their compassion for others that would distinguish them. Their compassion for others would be the very thing that distinguished them as believers and followers of his teachings and example.

When it came to welcoming guests in Jesus’ day, washing their feet was a regular habit, but it was a servant of low status who would have been assigned such a task.

Before encouraging the disciples to love others as he had loved them, Jesus performed this act of love himself.

As much as Jesus was speaking to his disciples in that room, Jesus also conveyed this order to every believer throughout history through the passage of time and through the transmission of Scripture from generation to generation.

Our absolute and unselfish love, which is still true today, will be the thing that distinguishes Christians from the rest of the world.

Do Different Translations Impact the Meaning?

The passage is regularly rendered in the many English translations of the Bible, with minimal change from one to the next. As a result of the consistency in translations, we may be confident that the passage is clear, accurate, and straightforward in its interpretation. It also challenges us to contemplate what it means for us to love as Jesus loved. A new commandment has been given to you, and it is that you love one another. “In the same way that I have loved you, you must love one another as well.” “I offer you a new commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you: just as I have loved you, you are to love one another as I have loved you.” “I offer you a new command: Love one another,” the New International Version (NIV) says.

How Will Others Know That We Are Disciples by Our Love?

This new instruction came after Jesus urged his disciples to love one another in the manner in which he loved them. He added that this is how people would know they were his disciples. That implies that when we love people in the same way that Jesus loves us, they will recognize us as his disciples as a result of the extreme love we demonstrate. It is taught in Scripture that we are to be distinct from the world (see: Romans 12:2, 1 Peter 2:9, Psalm 1:1, Proverbs 4:14), and the way we love is a primary signal of our being distinguished as followers of Jesus.

These early Christians were united by a life-changing Gospel message, as well as by a life-transforming sort of love for one another.

How Does Jesus Love Us?

The admonition to love others included in this text was most certainly not a new one. The novelty of this mandate may be found in the stipulation that people not only love, but that they love others in the same way that Jesus loved them. Jesus’ love was servant-hearted and self-sacrificial, even to the point of dying for us. Jesus’ love was unselfish, counter-cultural, and all-around excellent in all aspects of life. As his disciples, Jesus encourages us to love in the same manner he loves: with an open heart, a willingness to sacrifice, and a servant’s heart.

During his ministry, Jesus tore down walls and hostility, reached out to the disadvantaged and disenfranchised, and urged others who wished to follow him to do the same.

Due to his immense love, he was caught and brutally assaulted and murdered during his final hours on the planet. Jesus cares about each and every one of us so deeply that he went to the cross and gave his life for us.

How Can We Show That Love to Others?

In light of Jesus’ unfathomably great love, it may appear nearly impossible to display the same level of affection for others. Although Christ died and rose again, He gave His spirit to empower us to live as he lived and love as he loved. It will take a lifetime of learning to love like Jesus loves, and we have the opportunity to choose to do so each and every day we live. We may demonstrate to others the same sort of love that Jesus demonstrated by being humble, unselfish, and willing to serve others.

By bearing the fruit of the Spirit and serving and caring for others instead of indulging our flesh and prioritizing ourselves, we demonstrate Jesus’ love to those around us.

Not an Impossible Instruction

What a privilege it is that Jesus embraces us and gives us the ability to love as He loves. This passage does not have to appear as if it is an impossibly difficult instruction. It is a subtle and revolutionary prod to follow in his footsteps rather than our own. It is an appeal to love beyond ourselves and to place our attention on the interests of others rather than our own. To love as Jesus loves implies that we shall live the most complete and gratifying versions of our lives, knowing that we have contributed to the advancement of God’s kingdom rather than leaving our own legacy in this world.

  1. We will not be required to die for the sins of every human being, but since Jesus did, we have the option to spend eternity with him and the ability to love others in this life with a love that is pure and unselfish.
  2. Jesus, coffee, and music are the things that keep her going and thriving.
  3. Pamela married the guy who was meant to be her husband, and they had two lovely children.

7 Different Ways Jesus Showed Love

L ove is a state of being. No one, not even our Lord Jesus Christ, demonstrated the depths of pure love as he did. By His actions, He provided a model for Christians to follow in order to exhibit love to one another and to the rest of the world.

Have you ever taken some time to ponder on Christ’s love? If not, you should. Think about how there is nothing in this world, or nothing that is not in this world, that can ever separate us from His love. It’s a wonderful thought.

Meditate on the 7 different ways Jesus showed love during His earthly ministry:

Because of Jesus’ one-time sacrifice, God’s love extends beyond time and into all eternity.

1)Jesus Healed The Sick in Love

There were no hospitals, clinics, or doctor’s offices in existence throughout Jesus’ earthly mission. Both the affluent and the poor were troubled by the fear of incurable diseases caused by infections, fevers, or food poisoning. In contrast to many religious leaders of the time, Jesus, the Great Physician, felt incredible compassion for people who were made useless by sickness; nonetheless, many religious leaders of the time regarded the physically incapacitated to be cursed by God. Jesus is still healing people today, except that He isn’t constrained by the fact that He is in one place at one particular moment.

This compassion extends to individuals who are sick physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

2)Jesus Raised The Dead in Love

Thousands of individuals who were considered to be dead for only a few minutes have been brought back to life because to advancements in medical technology and science. Jesus, on the other hand, resurrected Lazarus from the dead after he had been in the tomb for three days! His tears were a testament to his feelings for Lazarus and for his sisters. As He has done since the beginning of time, Jesus continues to raise the dead by providing new life to everyone who puts their confidence in Him. His love reawakens us from our state of death, futility, and incomprehension.

3)Jesus Fed The Hungry in Love

Jesus performed one of the greatest miracles in history when he fed five thousand people with only five loaves of bread and two fish. These individuals weren’t even moderately hungry; they’d been fasting for three days in order to hear and absorb the wonderful teachings of Christ in their hearts. The lessons of God’s Word continue to nourish the earth, and he continues to do so in love. Many of us were spiritually malnourished and anemic in our thinking until the truth of the Bible pierced our hearts and filled our spirits with the power of God.

4)Jesus Preached The Kingdom in Love

It only took Jesus five loaves of bread and two fish to provide enough food for 5,000 people, which is considered one of the greatest miracles in history. It wasn’t that these individuals were moderately hungry; they’d been fasting for three days in order to hear and absorb Christ’s wonderful teachings. The teachings of God’s Word continue to be a source of love for the entire world. Before the truth of the Bible pierced our hearts and filled our souls, many of us were spiritually malnourished and anemic in our thinking.

5)Jesus Cast Out Demons in Love

Demon-possessed persons, both in Jesus’ day and in our own day, are frequently sent out into the wilderness. The majority of people do not want the drama that comes with dealing with bad spirits. These wounded souls were welcomed into the arms of Jesus’ love, which provided them with fresh life as well as release from spiritual enslavement.

As members of Christ’s body, Christians are called to go out in faith and proclaim freedom to others who have been held prisoner by Satan. Because perfect love wipes away all fear, our love for the lost must transcend our dread of losing them.

6) Jesus Interceded For His Disciples And The Church in Love

Jesus was well aware that the sheep would be scattered after His death, yet He prayed sincerely and lovingly for them, asking that they be safe, joyful, and kind toward one another. Christians are particularly vulnerable to being persecuted for their religion because they live in a sinful, fallen world while not being of it. However, many people would rather endure poverty, pain, and even physical death than renounce their Lord. Jesus is still interceding on behalf of people who are His followers out of love for them.

7)Jesus Gave His Life For The World in Love

Nothing that is revered today can compare to what Jesus accomplished by voluntarily stepping down from the throne of God to dwell among sinful men. Nothing. He sacrificed His life so that no one would be forced to spend eternity without the presence of God. Because of Jesus’ one-time sacrifice, God’s love extends beyond time and into all eternity. Who is man, that He should be concerned about him? We may never fully comprehend the extent to which God loves us through Jesus Christ, but we may be assured that we will always be in His affection.

Love in action!

Although the love of Jesus is larger and deeper than any human being can comprehend, we can recognize our own unworthiness and accept the charity that is extended to those who believe. Every day, Jesus demonstrates His affection for you recognize it?

How Does Jesus Love Us?

Image courtesy of Michael Fenton via Unsplash. This is my commandment: Love one another as I have loved you. This is my example for you to follow. John 15:12 New Living Translation What is the nature of Jesus’ love for us? One basic explanation why this is an essential question is as follows: Jesus instructed His followers to love one another in the same way that He loved them. This little thought will only serve to get us started on the subject of Jesus’ love for us for another simple reason: our understanding of Jesus’ love, as well as our understanding of ourselves, develops over the course of a lifetime.

  • Jesus came to us in order for us to get to know Him. It is necessary to love one another by bringing ourselves to one another in order to develop true and authentic relationships based on compassion
  • Jesus spent significant time with His disciples. The ability to love one another involves a large commitment of time and shared experiences
  • Jesus chose to devote his time and energy to God the Father’s plan instead. In order to love one another as Jesus loves us, we must maintain a continual focus on God and His will for our life. We ask individuals in our immediate vicinity to join us in following God
  • Jesus, by his final sacrifice, provides a better way to be reconciled with God. People are invited to accept the enormous sacrifice of Jesus when they love one another. As an act of love, we extend His forgiveness to everyone around us. Because of God’s self-sacrificial love for us, we sacrifice in our relationships to make them better
  • Jesus demonstrated how we should spend our lives. Helping one other live well is an important part of loving one another. In every aspect of life, Jesus provides us with compelling examples of how to live, pray, think, act, and be as a result of his teachings. He teaches us how to cope with authority, religion, racism, conflict, and money in a positive and productive way (just to name a few). He teaches us a new way of thinking (bless those who hate you and pray for those who persecute you)
  • He teaches us to love our enemies.

Motivating Question: What makes it possible for us to love one another as Jesus loved us? It all starts with our humble acceptance of Jesus as Lord and Savior in our life. The presence of the Holy Spirit, who lives inside us, allows us to continue to love one another. It is also essential to rely on God’s word, pray, and be in community with people who are also following God on this road of loving one another as Jesus loved us. Prayer:Dear Jesus, thank You for communicating to Your followers about loving one another in these words about loving one another.

You are much appreciated for challenging us to love one another in the same manner that You love us.

Please, Holy Spirit, assist us. May we share Your love with everyone we come into contact with and with whom we live today. We pray in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen. The Executive Director of the Warm Beach Camp and Conference Center is Ed McDowell.

Love Like Jesus: 12 Bible Verses to Take to Heart

This year’s Easter holiday is quickly approaching! During this time of year as we prepare to commemorate the ultimate act of love, here are 12 Bible scriptures on Christ’s love to meditate on in order to love like Jesus.

12 Bible verses about Jesus’ love

“I offer you a new commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you: just as I have loved you, you are to love one another.” “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another.” The Bible instructs us to love like Jesus did. So, what is the best way to go about it? After all, Jesus was without flaws. We’re not like that. Despite the fact that we will never be able to achieve Christ’s flawless standard, we are nonetheless obligated to strive. Fortunately, Jesus provided us with several practical examples of how to love, which we may follow in his footsteps.

Bible verses about loving through kindness

“Andwas trying to figure out who Jesus was, but he couldn’t because of the crowd, and because he was of small stature. Therefore, he continued on ahead and climbed up into a nearby sycamore tree in order to catch a glimpse of him, as he was about to pass that way. Then, when Jesus arrived at the location, he raised his eyes to him and said, ‘Zacchaeus, hurry and come down, because I must stay at your house today.'” One of the ways that Jesus showed his love was by being compassionate to others.

  • He climbed up a tree in order to catch a glimpse of Jesus as He passed by.
  • Others could have brushed off Zacchaeus, but Jesus was not one to do so!
  • As a result, several people who had a negative opinion of the diminutive tax collector were upset as a result of this.
  • The way he loved through compassion would change Zacchaeus’ heart, he was certain.

Jesus and Lazarus’ family

“When Mary arrived to the location where Jesus was and saw him, she fell at his feet, crying out to him, ‘Lord, if you had been present, my brother would not have died.'” When he observed her crying, as well as the Jews who had come with her, he was deeply stirred in his soul and terribly distressed by what he had witnessed. And he said, ‘How did you dispose of him?’ ‘Lord, please come and see,’ they said to him. Jesus broke down and sobbed. As a result, the Jews exclaimed, “Look at how much he cares about him!” In addition, compassion and empathy are two further ways to demonstrate kindness.

When Jesus’ friend Lazarus died, He grieved with the man’s sisters and friends, and He shared their sorrow.

This passage demonstrates the extent of Jesus’ love for us.

He wasn’t just pretending to be unhappy; he was truly upset. As a result, he extended the generosity of sharing his thoughts and feelings with Lazarus’ family and close friends. As a result, we may extend the same compassion to people in our immediate vicinity who are suffering.

Bible verses about loving through service

When he says this, the righteous will respond by asking, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink?’ And when was the last time we saw you as a stranger and welcomed you, or as a naked person and clothed you? And when was the last time we saw you sick or in prison and paid you a visit?’ As a response, the King will remark: “Truly, I say to you, just as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.” During the March Live It Challenge, we talked about the significance of giving back to the community.

When it came to helping others, Jesus did not hold back, and He urged His disciples to do the same.

As a result, we have even more incentive to love like Jesus and to assist individuals in our immediate vicinity!

Following Jesus’ example of service

In the course of his washing their feet and putting on his outer clothing and returning to his station, he addressed them with the question: “Do you realize what you’ve been subjected to?” You address me as Teacher and Lord, and you are correct in doing so, for that is exactly what I am. So, if I, your Lord and Teacher, have cleaned your feet, then you, too, should wash each other’s feet.” Jesus didn’t simply speak the talk; he also walked the walk, as the saying goes. As a servant, Jesus bathed the feet of his followers, placing himself in their position.

Jesus was not hesitant to display his love for people by serving them and humbling himself in the process.

Additionally, we have the chance to embrace Jesus’ loving perspective — to serve rather than be served – by embracing the gospel of love.

Bible verses about loving through forgiveness

He asked them, ‘Do you realize what I have done to you?’ after he had bathed their feet and put on his outer robes and returned to his station. For I am what I am, you can name me Teacher and Lord, and you are quite correct in doing so, because I am both. So, since I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, it is appropriate for you to do the same for one another.’ Jesus didn’t simply speak the talk; he also lived the walk, according to the scriptures. As a servant, Jesus washed the feet of his disciples, putting himself in their shoes.

When it came to helping others, Jesus was not ashamed to express his humility and love for them.

When He remarked in Mark 10:45 that He “did not come to be served, but to serve,” he made a compelling statement that was repeated again and again. Additionally, we have the chance to embrace Jesus’ loving perspective — to serve rather than be served – by embracing the gospel of hospitality.

Jesus’ example of forgiveness

“And Jesus answered to the Father, ‘Father, forgive them, for they do not understand what they are doing.'” If there was anyone who had a legitimate reason to refuse to forgive, it was Jesus. He was wrongly accused, beaten, humiliated, and put to a cross, where he died an agonising death under horrific circumstances. And it wasn’t simply the troops or the Jewish leaders who were responsible for putting him in that position. It was all of us — our wicked selves – who were in need of redemption.

Bible verses about loving through the truth

“‘God is spirit, and those who adore him must worship him in spirit and in truth,’ says the prophet. ‘I am aware that the Messiah is on his way,’ the woman informed him (he who is called Christ). All of this will be revealed to us when Jesus arrives.’ “I, who speak to you, am he,” Jesus said to her. You may have heard the expression “speaking the truth in love,” which means “sharing the truth in love.” If you care about someone, you don’t keep the truth from them — you tell them the truth! The truth was not something Jesus was afraid to tell others, and He always did it in a way that demonstrated His concern for them.

As a consequence, the woman was overjoyed to the point that she began sharing the truth about Jesus with others, and as a result of her testimony, many others came to believe in Him.

Being that Jesus is the one and only path to God is an unchangeable truth that will stand the test of time.

Following His death and resurrection, Jesus gave His followers the mission to go and make disciples of all countries, sharing His loving truth with them along the way (seeMatthew 28:16-20).

Bible verses about loving through sacrifice

However, if you love your adversaries and do good to them and lend to them without expecting anything in return, you will get a large reward and will be considered sons of the Most High, because He is kind to the ungrateful and the bad.” To love like Jesus did is to make a sacrifice. In order to love your adversaries, there is a price to pay, and it might feel like an especially high one to do so. Despite this, Jesus, in Luke 22:49-51, demonstrated the meaning of the statements above. A horde of people arrived to take Him into custody.

Despite the fact that the servant was a member of the crowd that had come to seize Jesus, Jesus demonstrated His compassion for the man by mending his ear.

“There is no greater love than this, that someone would lay down his or her life for his or her companions.” Because Jesus cared about us, He was ready to give His life in order to save us.

Despite the fact that we are not required to physically lay down our lives for someone else, we may nevertheless love as Jesus did by sacrificing our own interests in order to aid people in our immediate vicinity.

In addition, Isaiah 53:5 is a wonderful Bible scripture that speaks of Jesus’ love for us. When we talk of Christ’s self-sacrificial love, it draws us to.

The ultimate example of love

The greatest example of love the world has ever seen is provided by Jesus Christ. Consider reading through the Gospel story of Christ’s compassionate passion and glorious resurrection as Easter approaches. By reading through only those chapters, what instances of love do you observe from Jesus? Consider the lessons learned from those instances, and consider how you may emulate Jesus’ love in your own life as you seek to be more like Him. “Always remember to love one another as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us.”

Jesus Love – The Greatest Love of All

A reference to the love that Jesus exhibited to all of mankind throughout his time on Earth, also known as Jesus Love or the Love of Christ, is known as the Love of Jesus or the Love of Christ. According to the Christian religion, it can also refer to the love that believers have for Jesus, as well as the Christian love that Christians demonstrate toward others. Love is a fundamental component of the Christian faith, and Jesus Christ served as a model for the entire world in terms of how love should be received and demonstrated to others.

In fact, God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that whomever believes in him will not perish but but have eternal life with him.

What is Jesus Love?

A reference to the love that Jesus offered to all of people throughout his time on Earth, also known as Jesus Love or the Love of Christ, is the term “Jesus Love.” It can also refer to the love that Christians have for Jesus, as well as the Christian love that believers express to others in the Christian religion. Jesus Christ served as a model for the rest of the world in terms of how love should be received and presented to others. Love is a fundamental component of the Christian faith. One of the most well-known Bible passages, John 3:16, describes an example of this kind of love.

New International Version of John 3:16 (NIV) (NIV)

What Does the Bible Say About Jesus Love?

Apostle Paul argues in his writings to the Ephesians that God the Father launched the process of redemption via Christ, who freely gave his life as a result of his love and obedience to the Father and the apostles. As Paul explains in Ephesians 3:17-19, loving Christ is a prerequisite for coming to know Christ in his entirety. “Christ also loved the church, and he gave himself up for her,” according to Ephesians 5:25. The following passages from the Bible go into further detail on Jesus’ love: Knowing this, be assured that the Lord your God is God, and that he is the trustworthy God, who will preserve his covenant of love with those who love him and obey his laws for a thousand generations to come.

Your steadfast love, O God, is immeasurable in value.

– Psalm 36:7 (KJV) To those who come to you, Lord, you are kind and gracious, and you are overflowing in love toward them.

His love will last for all time.

He will take great pleasure in you; in his love, he will no longer reprimand you, but rather sing with joy over your accomplishments.” – Zephaniah 3:17 (NASB) In fact, God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that whomever believes in him will not perish but but have eternal life with him.

  • Now, please remain in my affection.
  • 11I have told you this in order for my joy to be present in you and for your delight to be complete in you.
  • 13There is no greater love than the love of a friend who is willing to lay down his or her life for them.
  • 15I no longer refer to you as servants, because a servant is not familiar with his master’s business affairs.
  • Thank you for your friendship.
  • 17 The following is my order: Love one another.
  • It is not envious, it is not boastful, and it is not arrogant.

6Love does not take pleasure in wickedness, but rather takes pleasure in the truth.

– 1 Corinthians 13:4-8However, God proves his own love for us in this: Christ died for us while we were still sinners (while we were still sinners).

And we exult in the expectation of God’s glorification.

5And hope does not cast us in a bad light because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts via the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us; thus, we are not ashamed.

38 We are not separated from God’s love through death or life, not by angels or demons, nor by the present nor the future, nor by any other powers39neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all of creation will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

The life I now live in the body is one that I have because of my trust in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself up to save me.

Nevertheless, because of his great love for us, God, who is abundant in mercy,5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in our transgressions—it is only through grace that you have been saved.

Consider how much love the Father has poured on us, as evidenced by the fact that we are now referred to as God’s children!

The fact that the world is unfamiliar with us is due to the fact that it was unfamiliar with him.

Everyone who loves has been born of God and has a personal relationship with God.

The Bible says in 1 John 4:7-89, God’s love for us was demonstrated in this way: He sent his one and only Son into the world so that we can live through him.

It is love, not that we have fallen in love with God, but that he has fallen in love with us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. 11 Dear friends, in the same way that God has loved us, we need to love one another. 4:9-11; 1 John 4:9-11

Jesus Showed Us How to Love Others

During Jesus’ time on Earth, he performed acts of healing on the ill, as recorded in the Gospels. He had a great deal of compassion for individuals who had been made powerless by sickness. Jesus used his healing abilities to display his compassion for people even though many illnesses and sufferings were deemed plagues and curses. When Jesus arrived on the scene and noticed a big throng, he was moved by compassion and healed their ill. New International Version of Matthew 14:14 (NIV) (NIV)

Jesus Fed the Hungry in Love

In one of the most well-known Biblical miracles, Jesus took two fish and five loaves of bread and used them to feed a crowd of people who were starving. In calling his followers to him, Jesus expressed his concern for the crowd, saying, “These people have already been with me for three days, and they have nothing to eat.” “I don’t want to send them out hungry, since they could pass out on the way,” I explain. 15:32 (Matthew 15:32) New International Version (New International Version) (NIV)

Jesus Cast Out Demons in Love

People in the Bible who were possessed by demonic spirits were considered misfits by their peers and families. However, when Jesus came across them, he gave them love and sympathy for their plight. He was able to expel their devils and set them free as a result. Several people who were demon-possessed were brought before him that evening, and he was able to drive the demons away with a single word and heal all of the ill. Matthew 8:16 (New International Version) is a passage from the book of Matthew (NIV)

Jesus’ Love Perfectly Reflects His Father’s Love

1-3. (a) What compelled Jesus to aspire to be like his heavenly Father? (b) What aspects of Jesus’ love are we going to look at? HAVE YOU EVER observed a young child attempting to emulate his father’s mannerisms? The son may replicate his father’s mannerisms, such as the way he moves, talks, or acts. In time, the youngster may even come to embody the moral and spiritual qualities of his father. Yes, the feelings of love and appreciation that a kid has for a caring father inspires the child to desire to be like his father as a result.

“I love the Father,” Jesus remarked on more than one occasion, according to the Bible.

This loyal Son was inspired by his Father’s love and aspired to be like him.

What, however, was the way in which Jesus reflected his Father’s love? Let us look at three aspects of Jesus’ love: his self-sacrificing spirit, his gentle compassion, and his readiness to forgive those who have wronged him.

“No One Has Love Greater Than This”

4. How did Jesus, the greatest human example of self-sacrificing love, set the bar so high? 4 When it comes to self-sacrificing love, Jesus set a high standard. In order to be self-sacrificing, we must put the needs and worries of others ahead of our own wants and concerns. What was Jesus’ method of demonstrating love? “There is no greater love than this,” he said, referring to the willingness of someone to give his or her life on behalf of his or her companions. (See also John 15:13) Jesus voluntarily gave up his beautiful life in order to save us.

  • However, Jesus demonstrated self-sacrificing love in a variety of different ways.
  • What was the significance of God’s only-begotten Son’s decision to leave the heavens as a loving sacrifice?
  • A close relationship with Jehovah and a vast number of spirit beings existed between him and the deity.
  • Philippians 2:7 (Philippians 2:8) He chose to dwell among sinful humans in a world that was “under the control of the evil one.” He did it voluntarily.
  • 6, 7.
  • Which of the following is a heartwarming example of selfless love as reported in John 19:25-27?
  • He had a completely selfless attitude.

According to him, “foxes have burrows, and birds of heaven have roosts, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.” (Matthew 8:20; Luke 8:20) Because he was a good carpenter, Jesus might have taken some time off to construct a pleasant home for himself or to create beautiful furniture to sell in order to generate some additional income.

7 Jesus’ self-sacrificing love is beautifully illustrated in John 19:25-27, which is one of the most moving passages in the Bible.

While he was being burned at the stake, he was thinking about his followers, the preaching effort, and, most importantly, his own integrity and how it would reflect on his Father’s reputation.

Although he was about to be crucified, Jesus appeared to be concerned about his mother, Mary, who had allegedly become a widow at that point.

Jesus instructed the apostle John to care for Mary as if she were John’s own mother, and the apostle then invited Mary to stay at his house for a while. As a result, Jesus made arrangements for his mother’s bodily and spiritual well-being. What a sweet, selfless act of love you have shown!

“He Was Moved With Pity”

In what ways did Jesus provide the greatest human example of self-sacrificed love in history? 4 When it comes to self-sacrificing love, Jesus set a high bar. In order to be self-sacrificing, we must put the needs and worries of others ahead of our own interests and concerns. When and how did Jesus show such compassion? “There is no greater love than this,” he said, referring to the willingness of someone to give his or her life on behalf of others. The Bible states in John 15:13 that The flawless life of Jesus was gladly given up for us.

  • There were additional instances where Jesus demonstrated self-sacrificing love.
  • 5 The only-begotten Son of God occupied a privileged and elevated place in the heavens throughout his prehuman life.
  • Despite these personal privileges, this beloved Son “emptied himself and took on the form of a slave and came to be in the likeness of humanity,” as the Bible states.
  • The Bible says in 1 John 5:19 Were the words from God’s Son not a loving sacrifice on his behalf?
  • As stated in John 19:25-27, what heartwarming example of selfless love can you think of?
  • The man had no regard for himself.
  • In his words, “Foxes have burrows and birds of heaven have roosts, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head,” he explained.
  • 8:20; Luke 8:20; John 8:20 Considering that Jesus was a competent carpenter, he might have taken some time off to build a comfortable home for himself or to create beautiful furniture to sell in order to get some additional income.
  • 7 Jesus’ self-sacrificing love is beautifully illustrated in John 19:25-27, which is a must-read for anybody who loves Jesus.
  • His main concerns when he was being burned at the stake were for his followers, the preaching job, and notably his own integrity and how it would reflect on his Father’s name.
  • Yet, in the final minutes before his death, Jesus expressed worry for his mother, Mary, who had become a widow at that point.

Jesus instructed the apostle John to care for Mary as if she were John’s own mother, and the apostle then invited Mary to stay at his house for the rest of the day. The physical and spiritual care of Jesus’ mother was so planned by him. What a sweet, selfless act of love you have there!

“Father, Forgive Them”

What evidence do you have that Jesus’ desire to forgive was on display even as he was being tortured on the cross? 16 Another key aspect in which Jesus completely portrayed his Father’s love was that he was “willing to forgive.” Psalm 86:5 says that Even when he was being tortured, his desire to sacrifice himself was clear. As he was being subjected to a humiliating death, with nails piercing his hands and feet, what was it that Jesus spoke about? Is it possible that he cried out to Jehovah to punish his executioners?

  1. – Matthew 23:34.
  2. In what ways did Jesus indicate that he had forgiven the apostle Peter for his three times denial of His authority?
  3. There is no doubt that Peter cherished his relationship with Jesus.
  4. The Bible tells us what happened after Peter made his third denial: “The Lord turned and gazed at Peter,” as the Bible puts it.
  5. When Jesus died later that day, the apostle may have questioned, ‘Did my Lord forgive me?’ he may have thought.
  6. 18 Peter didn’t have to hold his breath for long before getting a response.
  7. In the Bible, (Luke 24:34; 1 Corinthians 15:4-8) What was it about the apostle who had so vehemently denied Jesus that caused Jesus to pay such close attention to him?
  8. However, Jesus went above and above to soothe Peter.
  9. On this occasion, Jesus confronted Peter three times (after he had previously denied his Lord) about his feelings for him and his love for him.
  10. Jesus, on the other hand, provided Peter with a chance to affirm his love.
  11. (See also Luke 5:10) But now, in a stunning display of faith, Jesus entrusts him with a new and grave responsibility: the care of those who would come to believe in Christ.

Within a short period of time, Jesus elevated Peter to a prominent position among the disciples’ activities. (Acts2:1-41) What a relief it must have been for Peter to learn that Jesus had forgiven him and continued to trust him!

Do You “Know the Love of the Christ”?

20, 21. How do we come to completely “understand the love of the Christ” in its fullness? 20 The love of Christ is eloquently described in Jehovah’s Word, and this is true. What we should do in response to Jesus’ love, on the other hand, is unclear. The Bible exhorts us to “come to know the love of Christ, which exceeds all understanding.” (See also Ephesians 3:19) As we’ve seen, the narratives of Jesus’ life and work in the Gospels reveal a great deal about Christ’s love for us. Learning about Christ through the Bible is important, but getting to “know the love of the Christ” on a deeper level entails more than that.

In this way, we grow to “know the love of the Christ that exceeds all understanding” via our own personal experience.
