2 John 6

2 John 6 - And this is Love: that we walk in obedience to His commands. As you have heard from the beginning, His command is that you walk in Love.

Love is the ultimate command. If we walk in Love we are walking in obedience to God. How do we walk in Love? We walk as Jesus walked. When Jesus was here on earth He gave us the example of how we are to live. And His example was Love.
Jesus first Loved God. Nothing got in the way of His relationship with God and nothing came in between them. Jesus said that all He did was from the Father. His connection with God was one of Love. They were (and are) unified together in such a way that God’s Love overflowed from Him in all He did.
That is how our relationship with God ought to be. We ought to be so in Love with God that His wants and needs supersede our own. When that happens we will truly be able to walk in the Love of God as Jesus did.
As we follow Jesus story through the gospels we see that everywhere He went He Loved people. Jesus would go from city to city and town to town preaching the kingdom of heaven, but He was often interrupted. He would see those who were lost and hurting and His heart would go out to them.
God’s Love would shine through Him every day as He healed the sick and spent time with those who were rejected by others. Jesus not only Loved the ‘good’ people, but He Loved the unlovable. We must strive to do the same and live in obedience to God’s command: Walk in Love.
