The apostle John writes Christ's final lesson to the disciples before His death.

John 13:34  [Jesus said] So now I am giving you a new commandment:  Love each other.  Just as I have loved you, you should love each other.  (NLT)

It's the last supper with Jesus and the disciples . . . Judas has just left to betray the Savior;  imagine Jesus leaning forward and summing up the 10 commandments with a new commandment -- "love one another".  Most everyone believes love will make the world a better place -- but how do you make that happen?  Jesus says, "as I have loved you, you should love each other."  But again, "How", does Christ's love change the way we love?

Perhaps an example from science will help:  if you leave a piece of metal in contact with a magnet . . . over time that metal will acquire magnetic qualities.  As a Christ-follower, determine to stay close to Him:  living in obedience, reading His Word, and communicating with Him in prayer.  Over time . . . you will begin to love like Christ!
