God is Love (1 John 4: 8).
We must be connected to God in Christ to possess love - and once we possess love - we then can love - BECAUSE WE NOW ARE LOVE - and love in ways you never thought possible.
Jesus clearly commands us to love others as He says in John 13: 34 - 35, "A new commandment I give unto you That ye love one another as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. (35)By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another."
To love others as Jesus loved us we must be born-again (saved) because we are sinners and in need of a Savior. We must accept the plan of salvation offered by God found only in the blood and forgiveness of His Son Jesus Christ. Once we surrender our life to Christ, then we can truly love others.
We don't do a good job of obeying Jesus in loving others or the world would be a better place to live. The traditional church in America has done a poor job on following this commandment and teaching others to love. One reason can be found in the words of Jesus as He stated, "By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another." The church no longer is in the business of making disciples. The world does not see the church teaching disciples nor does the world see many disciples in the church loving others.
