Learning Jesus’ commands.

Passing Jesus’ Love On To Others.


Principle of Learning – Learn with the intent of passing it on to someone else within 24-48 hours, and you will learn better.




Week 1 - Learning To Love.


Love one another


Matthew 20:

25 But Jesus called them to Himself, and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great men exercise authority over them.

26 “It is not so among you, but whoever wishes to be great among you shall be your servant,

27 and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be your slave;

28 just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”




Week 2 - Loving Those Who Do Not Love You.


Sermon on the Mount


Matthew 5:38-42

38 “You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.’

39 “But I say to you, do not resist him who is evil; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also.

40 “And if anyone wants to sue you, and take your shirt, let him have your coat also.

41 “And whoever shall force you to go one mile, go with him two.

42 “Give to him who asks of you, and do not turn away from him who wants to borrow from you.



Matthew 5:43-48

43 “You have heard that it was said, “You shall love your neighbor, and hate your enemy.’

44 “But I say to you, love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you

45 in order that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.

46 “For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax-gatherers do the same?

47 “And if you greet your brothers only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same?

48 “Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.


Matthew 18:

21 Then Peter came and said to Him, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him? Up to seven times?

22 Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven.





Week 3 – Loving Self-Sacrificially / Trust.


Sermon on the Mount, part 2 – flowers; birds neither reap nor sow nor gather into barns, yet your Heavenly Father feeds them.


Matthew 6:

33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.


Matthew 19:

29 “And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or farms for My name’s sake, shall receive may times as much, and shall inherit eternal life.


Matthew 24:23


Matthew 25:31-40-46



35 “So shall My heavenly Father also do to you, if each of you does not forgive his brother from your heart.”




Week 4 – Love That Overflows.

Psalm 23:5 …my cup runneth over…


Freely have you received, freely give.


How many times did Jesus have COMPASSION on those around Him? In how many different ways could He have rejected those who came to Him, yet He did not?
