Text: John 13:1-5, 33-35

Jesus demonstrated His love to His disciples in order for them to understand & obey His commands of “loving one another”. Practicing this will prove that they are really Christ’s disciples.

What kind of love Jesus demonstrated?

Greek words for love:
Eros: affection bet. a man and a woman
Storge: natural affection among family members
Phileo: fond of a person, object or activity
AGAPE: unconditional love – not based on emotions, on what someone/something can give.

Jeremiah 31:33
John 3:16
Romans 8 38-39

How Jesus thought this love?

John 13:15 “I have set you an example that you should do as I have done to you.”

The love that Jesus was referring to is SERVANTHOOD.

Galatians 5:13

Why Jesus commanded His disciples to “love one another”?

John 13:34
“a new COMMAND I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.”

Why must we obey Christ?

John 13:35 “By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”

If the love of Christ is seen among Christians, that alone is already a step towards witnessing Christ to nonbelievers.
