Love marks Christ’s disciples!
Scripture reading for April 23rd: John 13, Psalm 81, Proverbs 19
Key Scriptures: John 13:34-35 “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. By this all people will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”
Jesus had shown His love to His disciples by taking a towel and washing their feet. He served them. Jesus gave His disciples a new commandment. It really was a summary of the ten commandments and the law of the kingdom of heaven. This commandment was not a suggestion and would be the distinguishing mark of all who belonged to Jesus. It was simple but not easy–to love one another as Christ had loved them.
Faith Confession: Jesus, thank You for loving me by serving me and all mankind. Help me today to love others that come into my path.
Proverbs 19:22 “What is desired in a man is steadfast love, and a poor man is better than a liar.”
