The Command: Learning to Love Like Jesus


Why is it that we remember the “thou shalt nots” of the 10 Commandments in the Old Testament better than the four “thou shalts” of Jesus in the New Testament? The commands? Love the Lord your God with all your heart. Love your neighbour as yourself. Love one another. Love your enemies. The over-arching command is to love.

Imagine what kind of people we would be if we took Jesus’ commands seriously. In His life and ministry, Jesus modelled what such love looks like–, and this book is a call to learn to love like Him. After all, that’s what He commanded us to do.

The Command is about what that can look like.

  • This book is written in an accessible style, with a personal story beginning in almost every chapter.
  • Chapters end with a case study story illustrating the main emphasis of the chapter.
  • Each chapter also features seven questions for group discussion.

Love was the winning force that brought people to Jesus in the pre-Christian world and it can do the same in our post-Christian Western world. That’s our challenge. And it’s something every Adventist can do. No training is needed, just a heart for people and for God.
