A New Command
Bible Reading: John 13:34-35
Tuesday, May 3, 2016
Why is it important for Christians to love each other? First, God commands Christians to love one another. Second, Jesus said in verse 35, “All people will know that you are my followers if you love each other.” If we love our Christian brothers and sisters, other people will see this and know that we follow Jesus.
How can we show our love to other Christians? 1 John 3:18b tells us that we “should show our love by the things we do.” We can share each other’s burdens, encourage each other and forgive each other.
I want people to know that I follow Jesus. I hope you do, too! — DJH*
“God gave us this command: If we love God, we must also love each other as brothers and sisters.” 1 John 4:21
PRAYER: Dear God, show me how I can love other Christians. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
