“My children, I will be with you only a little longer. You will look for me, and just as I told the Jews, so I tell you now: Where I am going, you cannot come.
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
John 13:33-35 (NIV)
Often we hear told that an unbeliever will look upon a Christian and ask a question such as, “what is it about you that seems so different… so peaceful, so content?” The verses above remind us that disciples of Jesus Christ will be viewed differently by others and they will behave differently from others. As followers, we are to love one another. This comes from a changed or renewed heart. May our love for others be evident. May we faithfully fulfill the command give to us by Jesus to love one another. In His name, I pray. Amen.
