(Notes by Kathy Y)
Pastor shared how he loves reading and buying books. May even have an "obsession". He buys books on Amazon and in their search, nearly 800,000 books come up with "GOD" in the title. But the word "LOVE" will result in more than 1 million. Our world craves love, but many cannot find it. In our text...just in verses 1-12, love is mentioned 12 times. In verses 13 on, it is referenced 45 times. Jesus used the word love often during His last week. The closer He travels to the cross, Love was heavy on His mind and heart. (vs 31 ...footnote: When Judas went out) Now Jesus can focus on what He means to have Love one for another. In vs 31 & 32 it is mentioned 5 times. In Jesus' mind, the cross has already been conquered. (GlorifiED)
John 17:4...How we glorify God. Are we accomplishing His will in our life? Jesus explains to the disciples that where He goes they cannot follow b/c their jobs have not been completed. As long as we have breath (vs 34-35) our job is not done. This "NEW" commandment does not mean it's an additional commandment. The meaning of the word used here for "new" means a freshness...refreshing of a current commandment. We we do love each other, the world will take notice. John 15:13. A new standard of Christian love...loving one another - AGAPE love. It's an act of God's will. We are to measure our level of love comparing it to the love of the Lord... what He showed his disciples. It's a commandment, a requirement!! We need to use Love as a verb - not just lip service. Love in a way that we would be willing to die for our brothers (fellow believers) Vs 35...an "IF" is present.
Agape love cannot be puled off in and of ourselves. We must abide in the Lord in order to have such love. We are weak & inclined to sin. We must be filled by the Holy Spirit. Our passion s/b to showcase our Love...love one to another...in the body of believers "UNCONDITIONAL" love...the love Jesus gives.
True Agape love can only be found in the Lord's "church"
1. Speak well of your church
2. Express your love to other believers
3. Loving action to someone that hurt you (Jesus Factor)
4. Serve other believers - in practical ways
