Chapter-a-Day John13

"Let me give you a new command: Love one another. In the same way I loved you, you love one another. This is how everyone will recognize that you are my disciples—when they see the love you have for each other." John 13:34-35 (TM)

Notice Jesus did not say, "This is how everyone will recognize that you are my disciples…"

  • when you have a little silver fish on your car
  • when your refuse to work on Sunday
  • when you’re in church every Sunday
  • when you dress up for church on Sunday
  • when you have a really big Bible with cool Bible cover
  • when you read all of the latest Christian bestsellers
  • when you only listen to Christian radio stations

the one thing tha Jesus commanded that we demonstrate to the world which sets us apart as His followers is this: when we love one another.

  1. 34-35″Let me give you a new command: Love one another. In the same way I loved you, you love one another. This is how everyone will recognize that you are my disciples—when they see the love you have for each other.”
    The only tolerance Christ taught is that we love everyone in spite of their weaknesses, sins, choices. That is how we will be known as Christ’s disciples. Boy, how society has abused this concept and watered down to politically correct speech/actions. The love that Christ commanded carries with it accountability.
