The last commandment

So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other.Just as I have loved you so you should love each other. Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples. Jn. 13:34-35

Jesus didn’t say, “get really good a apologetics.” He didn’t say,  “follow these rules and make sure everyone around you follows them too.” That would have been so much easier to measure to see if we’re doing it right. Instead he said “love like me.” so that the only way we know if we are close to hitting the mark is to keep looking at Him.

Lord, Your love is beyond me, but love through me anyway.
