Love each other // 12-06-18

“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

To love is a choice not a feeling! If Jesus commanded us to love each other then it must be possible. Loving each other like Jesus told us to means choosing to see the best in each other, choosing to seek the best for each other, choosing to treat each other well, choosing to speak well of each other and choosing to speak the truth in love to each other. That level of care and accountability casts out fear, helps us overlook offence, and is the best antidote to hate! It’s this love that marks us as followers of Jesus! When the enemy is trying to divide and conquer, love is what will keep us strong together! Lord, forgive me when I haven’t loved as I should, help me to love like You ❤
