He instilled the spirit of Christian love in His followers so that they lived without malice and died without rancor.
The love that Christ talked about can only be given to us by God. It is part of the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23). When you come to Jesus Christ and accept Him as your Lord and Savior, He gives you a supernatural love that allows you to love your enemy. This is the answer to the race problem. This is the answer to the many other problems that face the world today.
When you come to Jesus Christ, He transforms you. Your past is forgiven. You receive a power to love people, beyond your natural ability to love.

Dear Lord, please overwhelm and overtake me with Your love, so that it consumes me and flows forth to the people around me and into the world, bearing fruit that remains for all eternity. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
