Prologue–Christ’s New Commandment

Christ’s New Commandment issues organically out of God’s purpose. Every thought and action has a purpose. God’s purpose is the reproduction of Himself. “God is love.” Therefore, His purpose is to reproduce agape love.

God has a plan to accomplish His purpose. It is to use human beings to reproduce Himself in. Because it takes time, His plan has been written down and has come to us in the Holy Bible. But unfortunately, it is a closed book for most readers. It is full of mysteries because people do not know God’s purpose in creating the earth and the human beings teeming on its surface.

Christ said, “A new commandment I give unto you, that you love one another, as I have loved you, that ye also love one another” (John 13:34). In short, we are commanded to love each other like He loved us.

So, how do we obey His command? We have been taught that we cannot be like Christ. Yet, He tells us to be like Him, to love like Him. Do we look at John 13:34 and turn our backs and say, He really didn’t mean what He said? Or do we ask Him to open our eyes and hearts to solve the mysterious command?

We better obey Him. He is the great Teacher. He created all things, so surely He will show us how to obey His New Commandment (Col. 1:16). He does this by giving us a series of specific commands, or commandments, that we can study out and apply in our lives.

For example, He commanded us to forgive each other (Mark 11:25). When we forgive, God’s Spirit grows within us, much like our muscles grow when we use them. God’s purpose is for Him to grow in us to a point that it is all Him inside of us. This is how God will reproduce Himself in us.

His New Commandment is to love each other the way He loved us. Under this overarching Commandment are many other commandments. When we obey them, we will have loved each other with Christ’s love. Christ knows that it is a big order to fill for us. So He breaks it down into smaller steps. We ask Him for more of His Spirit in order that we may forgive, thus loving that person who has offended us. For it is only His Spirit now growing in us that does the loving.

The first section of this book will give more background information. The second section will address several of Christ’s new commandments in detail. We will not attempt to elucidate all of the new commandments of Christ. They are like pearls just under the sand, waiting for the pilgrim to discover them. It is our hope that this book will bring awareness of the commandments and their importance for our spiritual growth, that it may be used to carry us all on down the road to immortality, that God may reproduce Himself in each of us.

{This is the Prologue for the new book that I am working on. It is called Christ’s New Commandment. Our job as Christians is to help each other grow till it is fully “Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Col. 1:27). Be sure to order one of my books.
