“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” – Jesus – John13:34-35
Jesus just passed the torch, are we willing to accept it? No, He didn’t finish His race with this act, but with it ours just started. Are we willing to run it? What sets apart Christ’s disciples? It’s our love. Could anyone, from observing us, tell that we follow Jesus? Would others say of us, “They love?” Could that be said of us? Jesus loved with His whole life. Now He wants us to do the same. What will that look like? For you I don’t know. It will look a little different for everyone. But, it will mean our actions, and everything we do, will be because of love. We won’t succeed at it. But we need to try. We won’t be perfect. But don’t let that stop us from starting. We will mess up. But that’s why Jesus died for us. Because He loves us, we love too. The torch has been passed. Let’s carry the flame of love high.
