Church Readings – Jesus Commandments


Be completely humble and gentle
Be patient
forgiving one another in love

Be compassionate
in the way your Father is compassionate

Let all that you do be done in love.

Let us love,
not in word or speech
but in truth and action

Let us love one another
because love is from God
for God is love

Love your enemies
and pray for your persecutors

Love your enemies
and do good, and lend
expecting nothing in return

You are to love your neighbor
as yourself

This is my order to you
you are to love each other
just as I have loved you

Clothe yourselves in love
which binds everything together in perfect harmony
