Our lives often are nice neat packages of projects, responsibilities, schedules, and tasks. And that works in a lot of things but not when it comes to obeying the command of our Lord to “love one another.” He doesn’t give us a nice little handbook to follow. Nor does He gives us a pamphlet of three easy instructions to implement. No, like all things in the Christian life, He brings us to Himself. He is the “handbook”. He is the sheet of instructions. The simple words “just as I have loved you” force us to do two things, if we are to obey it.
