John 13:34 - “a new command I give you.”
The “Golden Rule” is the basic expectation.
obey commandments sell all you have
don't commit adultery don't look with lust
an eye for an eye turn the other cheek
do not murder don't be angry without reason
love your neighbor love your enemy
Golden Rule love as I have loved you
By giving this new commandment, Jesus is asking for a new commitment.
Are you willing to lay down your:
1. anonymity? (Matthew 10:32)
Stand up and be counted as a worker in His kingdom.
2. preferences? (Phil. 2:2)
for the good of others and a unified purpose
3. ownerships? (Phil 3:7)
for the sake of your higher calling
