God is spirit (John 4:24). His spirit is omnipresent, creative, and infinitely intelligent. His intelligence is evident by the fact that everything he created has a highly intelligent design. For example, a human brain has trillions upon trillions of connections and a capability equal to 20 thousand computers. God"s Spirit is love. His spirit touches every human heart and propels us to express unconditional love. Because God is spirit, we do not see him through our physical eyes. However, we do experience Him through the spirit of love we find in our own heart and in others.

If we look deep in our heart, we realize that we find complete peace only in unconditional love. This indicates that unconditional love is our basic nature and the spirit of our creator. We get a confirmation of the fact that our creator is love, if we believe that Jesus is God; because in Jesus we can see a God of infinite love and mercy. Jesus came into this world to preach good news to the poor, heal the brokenhearted, proclaim freedom to those who were enslaved by sin and release from darkness for those who did not know the truth about the love of God (Luke 4:18 & Isaiah 61:1). The world, however did not recognize him (John 1:10) and disliked his mission. He, however stayed faithful to His mission, because he knew that it would bring us eternal life. He, therefore, freely and quietly accepted pain, ridicule, humiliation and a shameful death on the cross (Isaiah 53: 5 &7). Furthermore, he forgave his persecutors (Luke 23:34) and was concerned about the suffering our sins would bring us rather than his own suffering (Luke 23:28). Through his expression of love for us, he instilled the spirit of love in our heart. This frees us sin.
Because Jesus freed us from sin, we can love one another as he has loved us (John 13:34-35), quietly bear each other"s burdens, die to our self in order to bring healing to those who hurt and betray us, forgive without any limit (Matt. 18:22), bind each other"s wounds and be a servant to others. Christianity therefore is not about our rights, our feelings or our life. It is about sacrifice, undying fidelity, humility, obedience, servitude, compassion and forgiveness. True Christians therefore, love their enemies, do good deeds to those who hate them, bless those who curse them, pray for those who mistreat them, and stay faithful to their marriage vows even when there is abuse and unfaithfulness, and offer the other cheek if struck on one. (Luke 6:27-30).
Love is the spirit of surrender, sacrifice, service

Welcome, Jesus spent his time preaching that in order for God to love us we need to love him first and prove our love to him. He even said somewhere in John, that God Loves him for he kept his commandments !!! so not sure where Christian doctrine about love comes from ?!

From whence do you get your knowledge of Jesus' teachings?

From the direct words of Jesus in the Gospel! I do not read what others say about him especially when they contradict his clear statements.

You have been misinformed, the words alleged to have been said by Jesus in the gospels are the words of an anonymous author claiming that Jesus said them.
