love others as yourself

Today at our staff devotional we discussed John 13: 34 -35 " 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. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”

When you first read this it seems so simple. Then as I read verse 35 again - I really panicked realizing that how much I love others is my testimony.

The world fights, is full of jealous competition and lives within the mindset of entitlement. That is why God knew our greatest challenge would be to love them regardless of how they act or what they deserve. Just as He has loved us regardless of what we deserve.

Jesus loved us more than himself - He died for us...He chose to die for us...amazing!
