Daily Thought – New command: Love like Jesus!

Comments

Word: A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. John 13:33-34

Thought: The word ‘Maundy’ is the Latin word which refers to command or mandate – What is this command which Jesus gave to His disciples – Love like me. Jesus did not come to change the law or give new commandments, but to fulfill the law. So this statement by itself is not new, but the new clause added here is “just as I have loved you” – Jesus lived in the world and set us the standard of love. Many a times we think we love others, but the question is “Do we love like Jesus?” – The unconditional love: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us not expecting anything from us but pouring His grace and loving you and me. As His disciples we are called to show the same love to one another, that people around us will know that we are His disciples. It is easy to love those who love us and love with expectations, but do we love those who do not love – it is not just not doing bad, but doing good. Today, let us not boast about our love for others, but think do we love  like Jesus  everyone, every time, everywhere – Let them know we are Christians by our LOVE.

Prayer: Dear Lord, Thank you for sending you son to us and showing us the extent of your love. Help us to understand the extent of the love that we might be able to love others the best way possible to be a testimony for you in the places you have kept us on. Amen.
