In the Grace New Testament Commentary, Zane Hodges writes:
Christian love can be recognized by its conformity to the
supreme model found in Christ’s death for us. Although Christ
died for the entire world (2:2), when a believer considers his
own obligation to love he should focus on the fact that it was for
him that Christ died. As the personal beneficiaries of His great
sacrifice, believers should be prepared to make a similar sacrifice
for the brethren.” This reminds us of “ whatever you do for the
least of these, you do for Me” (See Matt 25:31-46).
