Bible Study with Commentary on John 15:13

Sermon on John 15:13

How many people will be ready to sacrifice anything to help their loved ones? This is what Jesus was telling His disciples.

The verse that precedes John 15:13 says, “My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.”

It’s a simple command. Love others as Jesus loved you.

Romans 5:8
“But God demonstrates his love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

Jesus had to die for us to show how much he loved us. There is no love greater than this.

The source of this love is from above. God, Himself is love. God is powerful. He is the Almighty. He has saved people with His mighty hands, punished people who needed to be punished, but then, above all else, He is a loving Father.
