Love One Another
Jesus commands his disciples to follow his example of love. But Jesus example was that he loved not just the lovely, but the unlovable. He loved Samaritans, lepers and other outcasts. In so doing, he broke down barriers between people. Clean and unclean, sinner and saint, were categories that seemed to mean nothing to Jesus. Jesus saw everyone as a child of God, then he challenged his followers to do the same. Here's an earlier sermon on Jesus' commandment to love one another.
