The who, how and why of love. Although John’s Gospel today is very short it reminds us of his commandment to Love. Who are we to love, one another?
How are we to love, as Jesus has loved? And going further we might ask, why are we to love? Because Jesus commanded us, and because Jesus loved us so much. Sometimes it can be
hard to appreciate how much God loves us.
How powerful and uplifting to hear, ‘My little children, I shall not be with you much longer. I give you a new commandment: love one another; just as I have loved you, you also must love one another.
By this love you have for one another, everyone will know that you are my disciples.
It reminds us of who, how and why we love and choose to follow Jesus’ commandment to love one another.
I cannot hear all the lovely ways we have completed this week’s mission.
