I was kind of at a loss for what this week’s dose of hope should be, until I accidentally wrote a piece on this one and it hit me in the face. If we’re talking about Jesus’ words before His resurrection and ascent into heaven (oh my goodness, Easter is creeping up on us so fast!) then we gotta deal with this one. These are the words Jesus spoke to His disciples right after He got down on His hands and knees and washed their feet in love: Love each other. Because that’s how the world knows we’re His disciples.
So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples. – John 13:34-35 (NLT)
So we’re going big and we’re going loud. Maybe I’ll even plaster this one around the house. We’re loving each other in Jesus’ name, just like He’s loved us.
Happy Saturday… If you’re reading this I should be far far away in a deep neighborhood of New York City rebuilding houses that came down in last year’s hurricane and fulfilling a nearly life long dream. Say a prayer. Things can get crazy when powertools are involved.
