For this is the message you heard from the beginning: We should love one another.
This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? 1 John 3:11, 16-17 (NIV)
We know the command. We have heard it many times. May we not only hear and believe, but do what we have been commanded to do. Amen.
