“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

Is this the way that we live, loving others?

You would think it was some flimsy, take-it-or-leave-it- suggestion.

You would think Christ’s own were known by who they avoid,

who they disdain,

who they call out,

or by who they label. (Ann Voskamp)

 

We often look at our own sin and minimize it, yet magnify our neighbor’s sin.

We need to be careful; if we think we are standing, we just might fall.

1 Corinthians 10:12

The way you view your condition before salvation makes a big difference

in the way you view the worth of your salvation.

The way you view your condition before salvation makes a big difference

in the way you view the worth of your salvation.

When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners. Now, most people would not be willing to die for an upright person, though someone might perhaps be willing to die for a person who is especially good. But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.

Romans 5:6-8

Love is the very foundation of truth: without love, Christ didn’t send you.

Until next time, Pam
