Did Jesus redefine how to love one another?

Hello,

I have been searching for answers regarding a few questions about something Jesus said. 

The original second great commandment mentioned by Jesus in Matthew 22:37-40 was first given in Leviticus 19:18, “you shall love your neighbor as yourself;”

The new commandment was given by Jesus in John 13:34, “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.”

Then Jesus tells us ‘how’ He loves us in John 15:9, “Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you;”

So, Jesus loves us just as the Father loves Him. 

Are we now to love one another (including our self) just as the Father loves Jesus?

If so, then did ‘how’ we are to love one another change with the coming of Jesus (and His finished work culminating at the cross), from being defined by the Mosaic Law to being defined by how the Father loves Jesus?

Any help in directing me to materials or persons that can help answer these questions would be greatly appreciated.

Warmly

Why does Jesus call Love One Another a New commandment?
He wants us to be like him and be at complete peace. By doing as he asks and following his commandments we will be living like Christ.

"But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return; and your reward in heaven will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High; for He Himself is kind to ungrateful and evil men." ( Luke 6:35) At what point does God NOT want us to be a doormat for abuse?

my neigbour
I have to say I do not love my neigbour. she is a vicious, nasty self seeking egotistical woman, who does not care fgor her kids properly and sits about criticizing and analysing everyone. Everything has to revolve around planet her, and I unfortunately am involved with her due to a situation and see what a user she is. I dont know what to do. She has animals she lets loose that are always giving birth and she does not take responsibility for them, or her many  kids who are always in the street or wandering alone around her farm with two open wells and a pool with no gate on. She looks like a snake, in fact a puff adder, and i cannot stand her any more.. I need help, one of my friends said i did not seem at all like a christan when i talk about her, (even tho this same person speaks rabidly of her mother and others). I need to get a grip. any suggestions?.

Love one another

You may think Jesus is an impossible pattern for humans to follow -- and you are right. We can never measure up to Jesus by ourselves.

The only way is for us to yield to Jesus -- to trust Him completely and obey Him explicitly. That way -- and only that way -- can we be like Him.

In a sense, Jesus is living His life through us. We cannot do it by our own effort -- but only by yielding completely to Him.

GALATIANS 2:20 NKJ 
20 "I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.

Let Jesus live His life through you. Seek His guidance in everything. Then obey Him.

Love One Another
We learn early on that there are many forms of "love" and most fall under the category of loving to receive something back. It is in our very nature to do this. But to love as Christ loved is to deny oneself, our agenda, and put ourselves in a place of humble degree. It may not be easy but in all things we must look, listen and learn from His example and know that He is our greatest encourager, and support. We then glean what love is for one another both sacrificial and rewarding. Egging us on to remain within that constant flow of loving one another.

Why does Jesus call Love One Another a New commandment?
Love is the foundation of peaceful and harmony living in every society. God loves us even though we are sinners, by his love he sent JESUS to save us from us from sins. During his teaching, he could heal sick people, he could help the needy and others. All these were in the name of LOVE God's lover. Therefore, we need to emulate the same love towards other people. Without love, the society can not have peace at all. This is why JESUS call ' LOVE ANOTHER' as a new c commandment. A society that has people who love one another, you can not see people killing each other, stealing, hatred and others. so Love is the foundation of peace and harmony living.
