13: “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.”
Jesus is the perfect example of love. He took on the role of a slave and washed the disciples feet. Even knowing that He would be betrayed and denied, He still became a slave to them. Why can’t we do the same? Why is it so hard for us to love someone who has hurt us or wronged us? Why is it hard for us to love the one who has lied on us?
Because of God’s great love for us, He sent His only Son into this cruel world. Jesus bled, suffered and died for our sins. And then He ascended to heaven to sit at the right hand of His Father and intercede on our behalf. God did not have to allow any of this to be so. But because HIS prophesy had to be fulfilled, He allowed it to be. Because of His great love, Jesus died for us. The greatest gift of all is Love. We get love when we give it away!
Try loving the HELL out of someone today!!
“Lord, teach us to love like you love. In the name of Jesus, Amen.”
