Jesus loved His disciples to the end of His life, and commanded His disciples to love one another just as He had loved them. John referred to Himself as “the one Jesus loved,” and urged his hearers to love others with action and in truth. Actively loving others is an undeniable indication that we have experienced the transformational, unconditional love of God. How has the love of God changed you? Who will you meet today who needs to experience the love of God?
Keep on loving one another as brothers and sisters.—Hebrews 13:1
Prayer: Lord, thank You for loving me. Like John, help me to find my identity in being loved by You. Thank You for loving me “to the end” forgiving, cleansing, and transforming me. May the reality of being loved by You overflow into my relationships with others today. I pray in the name of Jesus, whose love has changed my life, Amen.
