Confessions: A New Kind of Love
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” (John 13:34-35)
Does our love for one another give us away? Does it turn heads? The world is meant to know who we are by our love for one another – that we are Jesus’ disciples because we mimic His love.
Our love should be like His: strong, powerful, bold, courageous, humble, kind, serving, submissive, genuine, true and holy.
A new command!
One unlike any other because up until that point there had been no other love. Never before had God given such a powerful and beautiful demonstration of who He is. A new command for a new love; an eternal command for an eternal love.
Lord fill me with that kind of love!
