Loving Like Jesus- 8/06/2023
When we know a person intimately, it is said we begin to take on their personality traits. This can even be taken a step further to say some of these traits are passed down through our biological makeup. Today Jesus is telling us that He has chosen and appointed us, and as we find our identity in Him and follow Him, we will bear fruit just like He did. So, to be in alignment with Christ, we need to maintain a genuine and honest relationship with Him. However, Jesus does not stop there. He repeats a commandment to love one another, meaning we will also need to carry that genuine and honest relationship into our relationships with fellow believers, and then through that love, we will view the world. Then and only then will we know His heart and pray prayers that matter for ourselves, our church, and our world.
