There are twelve verses in the New Testament which contain the phrase “love one another.”  In light of the current state of the much divided nation, church, and families, it seems appropriate to simply present them for the same purpose that all Scripture is given:  “for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness” (2 Tim. 3:16).

*  “A new commandment I give unto you that ye love one another as I have loved you, that ye also love one another” (Jn. 13:34).

*  “This is My commandment, that ye love one another as I have loved you” (Jn. 15:12).

*  “These things I command you, that ye love one another” (Jn. 15:17).

*  “Owe no man anything but to love one another:  for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the Law” (Rom. 13:8).

*  “But as touching brotherly love, ye need not that I write unto you:  for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another” (1 Thes. 4:9).

*  “Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently” (1 Pet. 1:22).

*  “For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another” (1 Jn. 3:11).

*  “And this is His commandment, that we should believe on the name of His Son, Jesus Christ, and love one another as He gave us commandment” (1 Jn. 3:23).

*  “Beloved, let us love one another:  for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God” (1 Jn. 4:7).

*  “Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another” (1 Jn. 4:11).

*  “No man hath seen God at any time.  If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and His love is perfected in us” (1 Jn. 4:12).

*  “And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another” (2 Jn. 1:5).
