Love One Another

Author: Sarah Urf

Read John 15:12-13
This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.

One of my favorite things to see is our Kids Kare teachers love and build relationships with the children we serve. As a child becomes acclimated to the idea of being dropped off, we begin to see this transformation from hesitation to excitement of getting to go to their class. Loving children where they are at takes patience, perseverance and can often seem inconvenient.

When I look at our verses for today, I remember the deep love the Father has for us as His children. A love so pure and full of grace, to meet us where we are at, and still calls us to more. A sacrificial love, that while we were sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8). While we rarely need to lay down our lives for our friends, loving one another can often involve some form of sacrifice. It might look like sacrificing our time, pride, or even comfort zones to love and encourage others. My prayer is that the Lord would reveal to you ways within and outside of the church to show Christ’s love.
