What rule of life has Christ Himself given to guide us in such unselfish living

"Whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them." Matthew 7:12.

Who alone can remove the selfishness from the hearts of men? "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." Acts 4:12.(See also 1 John 1:9.)

Who, alone, then, is able to give to men genuine freedom? "If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed." John 8:36.

What was the attitude of Christ toward unbelievers? "If any man hear My words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world." John 12:47.

What attitude did Jesus say should control all of His disciples? "But Jesus... saith unto them, Ye know that they which are accounted to rule over the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and their great ones exercise authority upon them. But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister: and whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all. For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many." Mark 10:42-45.
