By Our Love

“I am giving you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, so you too are to love one another. By this everyone will know that you are My disciples, if you have love and unselfish concern for one another.” -John 13:34-35

By our love.

Not by the memes we post or position we have on masks or our political leanings. Not by the YouTube videos we share or the Bible verses we post. Not by the news article that supports our position and zings our neighbor. Not by the condensing remarks sent flying across social media or assumptions made from a two sentence text message.

By our love.

That is how we connect to each other. That is how we add value to each other. That is how we make people feel seen and heard. That is how we show the love of Christ. That is how we foster change. That is how we fill gaps for those who are hurting. That is how we multiply joy and instill hope.

By our love.
By our love.
By our love.
By our love.
By our love.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” -1 Corinthians 13:13
