A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another, as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples if ye have love one to another.
As new creations in Christ, we are to grow and mature in the Word of God, so that we become more like Christ every day. Putting aside the old self – the “me first, my way, my life” ego – we submit our lives to the will of our Father, so that, as the potter molds the clay, He can create in us a new heart, desiring His Word and His will in our lives. The changes He makes as we submit to His will allows the Holy Spirit now dwelling within us to express the fruits of the Spirit, among which is true love for one another.
