Do you love? I mean REALLY love?

Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. (John 13:34 NRSV)

I am amazed how many Christians have been in the church all their lives and still have missed the Gospel. So many folks still live in the Old Testament, bound by legalisms, restricted by the “Thou shalt nots” without being empowered by “Thou shalts.” Some are experts at the Ten Commandments, but absolute failures at the eleventh and most important of all.

Jesus said, “I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”

Let us note that this is what Jesus most desires out of us. He wants us to love one another. We may tithe. We may teach Sunday School. We may sing in the choir, serve on the official body of our church, even make visits on behalf of our church. All of these are wonderful. But if we do not love, we have missed the Gospel.

What can you do to be more loving?
