"A new commandment I give to you"
Everyone wants love and everyone needs love.
It is easy to love some people and difficult to love others.
The power and ability to love comes from the Spirit of God. When I abide in the Spirit His power enables me to love anyone and everyone.
THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT IS LOVE
Jesus words "a new commandment" is new because it defines the way He wants us to love others. "Love as I have loved you" John 13:34
The manner in which He loves raises the standard to loving unconditionally,sacrificially, incessantly and more.
Only God can love that way, but it is God the Spirit who indwells and grows the fruit in us. The fruit of love!
So why not put that fruit to effective use when you encounter those difficult people?
