It Seems So Simple

John 15:12-17

12 “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. 13 No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command you. 15 I do not call you servants any longer, because the servant does not know what the master is doing; but I have called you friends, because I have made known to you everything that I have heard from my Father. 16 You did not choose me but I chose you. And I appointed you to go and bear fruit, fruit that will last, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask him in my name. 17 I am giving you these commands so that you may love one another.”  NRSV

It’s been explained a zillion times over in a zillion different ways. Yet, there is no way to improve on the original way it came to us. “I am giving you these commands so that you may love one another.” 

For some unknown reason, we just can’t seem to master it. . . loving one another as Jesus loved us.

Be a blessing to someone today! That is how you show them your love.
