Loving Like Jesus Loves: John 15:12-17

I am blessed to be on the preaching schedule at Risen Life Church.  Recently, I preached on John 15:12-17 as a continuation in our series, "Final Instructions."

John 15:12-17 says, "This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.  Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you.  No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you. You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. These things I command you, so that you will love one another"  (ESV). 

What does it look like to love like Jesus loves?  And why would we need to love like this? These questions are addressed in the sermon I preached on February 19, 2012.   You can listen to this sermon here, or subscribe to the the audio Salty Believer podcast.
