The Law of Christ (Jesus’ Love)

John 13:34-35

…Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

1 Corinthians 9:19

Though I am free and belong to no one, I have made myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible.

1 Corinthians 9:21 

To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from the law of God but am under the law of Christ).

Galatians 6:2

Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.

Listen to people who don’t experience the world the way you do.

Be a student, not just a critic.

The you beside you is more precious to God than your potentially flawed view.
