Jesus demonstrated His compassion for people during His earthly mission by blessing and assisting the impoverished, the ill, and the afflicted. "This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you," He said to His followers (John 15:12; see also John 13:34-35; Moroni 7:46-48). Jesus also showed His love for us by becoming human so that He could suffer and die for our sins.
After Jesus' death and resurrection, He continued to demonstrate His love for us through the Holy Spirit. The Spirit helps us carry out God's will and leads us to help others, just like Jesus did (see John 16:13-14; 14:26; 15:26; 16:7).
God loves us perfectly with a perfect love. Jesus Christ showed this love to us by sacrificing His life for ours.
"A new command I give you: Love one another," Jesus says in John 13:34-35. You must love one another in the same way that I have loved you. Everyone will know you are my disciples if you love one another. Our discipleship and understanding of God may be assessed by our love for one another.
Jesus showed extraordinary love to those around him. It is this example we are to follow. We are to love God and others.
That does not mean that we should neglect ourselves. God has given us needs too. They are called "physical needs" because they include food, water, clothing, a home, and safety. But also included in this category are emotional needs - need met - and spiritual needs - need met through faith in Christ.
We are to meet these needs of our friends, family, and strangers just as Jesus did. He taught them by his actions and opened their eyes to see their need for salvation from sin. Then he provided salvation through his death on the cross and his resurrection three days later.
After Jesus' death, his followers continued to show him love by preaching his message and living according to it.
This is what Jesus expects from us. This means caring for the physical needs of others first, and then sharing the spiritual blessings of salvation through faith in Christ.
Jesus gave and exemplified the instructions to love one another (John 13:34) and to love our neighbor as ourselves (Matthew 22:39), which are now demanded by His disciples. How did Jesus demonstrate love and service? The following are some instances from the Bible: Compassion: Jesus was a very compassionate person. He showed mercy to those who were cruel to Him, such as the women who touched Him after He was crucified (see John 20:17). Love: Jesus loved His disciples even though they had abandoned Him. He went out of His way to seek them out when they were hiding (see Luke 15:11). Service: Jesus served others by dying on the cross for their sins. He serves us today by giving us eternal life through His death and rising again from the dead (see John 6:51-58).
God's attributes are wisdom, power, justice, and love. If we love God, we will follow His commands (see John 14:15). We show our love for God by obeying His laws and by enjoying Him forever in heaven after death.
How do we show our love for one another? Just like Jesus taught His disciples to love each other (see John 13:34), we should practice compassion, kindness, humility, and forgiveness. We should serve others above ourselves and give our time and money to help those in need.
34. In John 13:34, Jesus tells his surviving disciples, as if they were children, that he will stay with them for a little time and then leave them. "Love one another as I have loved you," Jesus said to the disciples in the commandment. Here is an example of what it means to love God and others: Jesus gave his life for his friends. It is this kind of love that God wants from us.
35. In John 14:15, 16, Jesus says that if anyone loves me, he will keep my word. My word is that people can come close to me and even kiss me without losing their love forever. This shows how powerful love is. Even though Jesus was human, he cannot be compared to anything in this world because everything material is limited and frail while love is unlimited and eternal.
36. In John 15:12, 13, Jesus says that if people keep my commands, they will remain in my love. My love for my friends is not forced or superficial; it comes from my heart.
37. In John 17:23, 24, Jesus says that his followers should keep his commandments to prove that they are really his disciples. Only those who love him will keep his commands.
38. In Acts 10:25, Jesus' disciples were told by God to spread his message everywhere so everyone would follow Christ.
Nothing is expected of us that Jesus has not already exhibited in his own person and life. Jesus provided and exemplified the instructions to love one another (John 13:34) and to love our neighbor as ourselves (Matthew 22:39), which His disciples today obey.
If a person is walking with God on the inside, their life (words, decisions, and acts done in obedience to God) should reflect that on the outside. "Whoever professes to be born of him must live as Jesus did." I John 2:6 The humanity of Jesus is the ideal embodiment of God's love for others.
Jesus' love was a tender love (John 13:33). "Little children, I am with you for a little while longer," says Jesus in John 13:33. You will seek me, and as I told the Jews, I will tell you again, "Where I am going, you cannot come."
The goal of the "God Sends Jesus to Show Us How to Live" lesson is to educate youngsters that Jesus was sent to show us how to love others, among other things. This is the ninth lesson of the Mission: Possible teaching series, also known as Vacation Bible School.
