Your Love for One Another is the Key!
By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. (John 13:35)
What makes the believer truly different from the unbeliever? How are we to know who is truly Kingdom citizens? Is there a full proof way for every believer to identify other disciples of the divine? There are many who would simply say that our faith separate us from those who do not believe. The Apostle Paul said to "Be not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind! , If we are to be who God has called us to be, the "Your Love for One Another is the Key!
Jesus spoke during the Lord's supper to His disciples and in verse 34 He instructed them to follow a new commandment. "Love one another as Christ had loved them! When we are interacting with fellow believers the world is watching and waiting to see if we are who we say we are. How do we talk to one another, how do we treat one another and how do we represent the one who died for our sins. Why is Sunday morning not filled with more love, why is Sunday morning not filled with more harmony and unity? If the church is going to be impactful in the community in which it lives, there must be a key element of change.
If we are to be truly followers of Jesus Christ then it begins not with how we will live in heaven but rather how we will live on here on earth. Love is an action word, and if we truly believe that He first loved us, then we must love on another by putting others before ourselves. "Your Love for One Another is the Key! .
