Love one another...

June 23, 2011

The Life of Jesus; A new commandment; John 13:31-35

LEB: John 13:35. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples—if you have love for one another.”

Read easy verse to read and follow isn’t it?  Or is it?

It is easy to love those who are down and out, help them out with finances or something, no big deal.  And it is easy to love those people we see in church and Sunday school, after all we see them once a week.

But how about those you work with every day.  The one who really rubs you the wrong way. Or the one who got the promotion that you were supposed to get.

Shall I bring it closer to home?  Your spouse, your kids?

It is really easy to love those we do not deal with on a day to day basis. But those we are connected to the most need love as well.  And yet, our churches are filled with people getting divorces because they do not ‘love each other’ anymore.

If I am to show my love, ‘one for another,’ shouldn't I be showing that love to my wife as well as the stranger?

Read for next time: Dispute about the greatest disciple; Luke 22:24-30
