If we sum up all the teaching of Jesus, it would be the gospel reading for today which is to love as Christ has loved us. It is our proof of loving God when we love others. It can seem a difficult task to be as sacrificial as Christ is, however, we have the Holy Spirit to help us. With a willingness to put others first, we can love others. The Early Church was founded on Christ’s love and also the love of the disciples for the Church. The Apostles sacrificed much and showed us godly examples of true followers of Christ.
