“By this all people will know that you are my disciples.”

“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.”- John 13:34-35

I once heard a compelling statement about christianity.

That statement that something along these lines… “If people are going to doubt christianity, it shouldn’t be because of christians. Instead of talking about the hypocrisy that plagues the christian faith, they should say something along the lines of “well, I don’t know about this Jesus character, but I can’t deny the unconditional love that christians operate in.””

If we truly love people following the same example that was given to us from christ, then NOONE could doubt the way we love.

So, with that, I challenge you today to seek a deeper and wider understanding of Jesus’ love for you, and in turn apply that love to your life and to other people in it.

Much Love and God Bless!
