John 15:12 (KJB) This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
“As I have loved you…”
Love means many different things in this world.
There is an eternal love that is exclusive to knowing God. There is an alternate pseudo-love defined and distributed by satan, the god of this world.
Genuinely loving others, as God loves you, is only possible through having a personal relationship with Him. Genuine love supernaturally involves the power and presence of God at work in a softened heart. A man cannot possibly love others as God has loved mankind for true love it is not possible outside the inner working of the presence and power of God.
The love of god working in this world has nothing to do with God. This love is replicated by satan and is all about mankind and his dark brand of evil work in this world. This kind of love is not sustainable and cannot ever come close to supernaturally fueled love available through personally knowing God.
A man can sincerely love God and mankind with a spiritually softened heart. A man cannot honestly love himself, other men, and this world with a heart hardened towards things of God. There is a divine order to genuine eternal love.
