Having been born again and come to faith in Christ, Christians are commanded to love one another. Within the household of faith, there are to be bonds of unity, commitment and self-sacrificial love. Just as our nature has been transformed by being born again by the Holy Spirit, so too our relationships are to be transformed following the example of Christ. Our love for our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ cannot be cheap, flimsy and fake. Rather, genuine love is distinguished by its concern for the welfare of others. Love means readiness to do anything for other people, even being prepared to give up one’s own life in order that others may live.
