God's people have always been called to love. Jesus himself spoke of the greatest commandments being those to love the Lord your God with all your heart, and to love your neighbor as yourself. But things changed after Jesus came as the ultimate picture of love. No longer were the people of God simply called to a selfless love. Now, we're called to A NEW KIND OF LOVE.
Join us in this Bible study on love as we discover how our new identity as children of God changes everything, not just about how we're loved, but about how we're called to love others as well.

Here are the four parts of this series in our Bible study on love. There is a whole lot here, so I hope you'll take your time and work through the content, seeking out truth for yourself in the pages of Scripture as you go along. Remember, I am a flawed human, and I get stuff wrong. But the Word of God is infallible. Let it be your guide, and your source of truth. And please always feel free to contact me with questions or concerns. Enjoy!
As we jump into this Bible study on love, let's get a quick overview of the concept of love as it applies to humanity. Why was it created, how has it been distorted, and what does God have to say on the matter? Most importantly, how did Jesus change everything with a new kind of love, and what does that mean for us?
Jesus taught there were two commandments, "The Greatest Commandments," that summed up the entire law: To love the Lord with all your heart, and to love your neighbor as you love yourself. We're digging into that teaching to discover not only what it means, but what it actually looks like to love like that.
We're digging deeper into our Bible study on love by examining Jesus' teaching on love. Specifically, we're looking at the new commandment He gave to His disciples just before He went to the cross. Jesus said this was a new kind of love that would set His people apart, clearly demonstrating to the world who belongs to Him, and who does not.
