Words cannot express the appreciation for the love and support the church has poured out on me and my family in the past weeks since the passing of my father. From all of the text messages, calls, cards, the notes, and even the crayon box of crayons reminding me you are “all in”, you have demonstrated what it means to “love one another.”
Jesus tells us in John 13:34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
Jesus reminds us that our love for one another is demonstrated in our actions. In fact, people will even recognize our true spiritual identity by how we love each other.
Destiny church, you’ve got it figured it out. Now, my challenge to you is to simply to continue to do for each other the very same actions that you have “demonstrated” to me and my family in this past week. Let’s let the whole world know who we are by our love.
