The Love Of God, Witnessed

I’m giving you a new commandment: Love each other in the same way that I have loved you. Everyone will know that you are my disciples because of your love for each other.” Jesus, ~ 32 AD, John 13:34-35 NOG

Jesus did not say that people will know that we are his disciples if we promote His agenda, but rather if we love one another. We open a door for the salvation of the ungodly by letting them see the truth and ways of God by our love toward our brothers and sisters in Christ. 

Christ has no hands, but our hands. No feet, but our feet. We are His ambassadors, representing Him to the world. When we love as He has loved us, it will make the difference.
