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. – John 13:34 ESV
Here Jesus is speaking to his disciples. What a commandment!
Christ loved us with his very all.
When you think about what he did, dying on the cross, it’s unbelievable and beautiful.
Was he weary, tired, broken, and doing it for people who didn’t have a clue? Yes!
But He stayed on the cross until it was finished.
We need to love the way He did and that’s a tall order!
Sometimes when I’m tired….I only think of myself and my fragile love for others fades, especially when my efforts go unnoticed and unappreciated.
Father, help us to love others the way Christ loved us. Amen!
