Love One Another

School has started and we are all so very busy, so let me keep this short.

Can you name the other Christians at your school?
Stop for a moment and think about who they are.

Now, think about how you treat them.

Jesus told his disciples:

"By this everyone will know that you are my disciples,
if you love one another.”

John 13:35

If I were to be honest with you, I would have to say that there are times in my life when I have gone to school with, worked with, and even gone to church with Christians that I don't really like very much. It is such a challenge to me to love all my brothers and sisters in Christ like Jesus loves.

That just sounds so mean and nasty written there in black and white, but it is the truth.

So this challenge is for me.

This challenge is for you.

If you are a disciple of Christ, Jesus is calling you to really love other disciples.

Pray about it. God will reveal who you need to love on more and give you the power to do it.

  1. Thanks for the good reminder of how we should treat everyone - whether they are Christian, non-Christian or we just don't know. It makes me think of the song that says, "And they'll know we are Christians by our love."
