“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
It's one thing to say that you love others, it's another thing to show it.
“We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters. If someone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister in need but shows no compassion—how can God’s love be in that person? Dear children, let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions.” 1 John 3:16-18 NLT
We are called to love as Jesus loved us. Our love for one another is a testimony to the world that we are truly disciples of Jesus. We are to be the manifest love of God in the lives of others.
“God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins. Dear friends, since God loved us that much, we surely ought to love each other. No one has ever seen God. But if we love each other, God lives in us, and his love is brought to full expression in us.” 1 John 4:9-12 NLT
Who in your life needs to know that you love them...needs to know that God loves them?
Show them today just how much God loves them by letting God love them through you.
“We love each other because he loved us first.” 1 John 4:19 NLT
