We can identify someone who is famous just by what they look like. No one has to tell us who they are. They just walk through the door and we are stunned in their presence because we know who they are. What a challenge that we have the following verse to tell us how we should be identified:
“By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
People should see that we are followers of Jesus because of our expressions of love for one another. We are to be living, breathing ID cards. Our acts of love should extend to everyone, but this verse specifically calls on us to show love to our fellow Christians.
I’m proud to be a member of a congregation where we show our love for one another every week. I thank God that many who have visited us have seen it also, and have reported it as well.
Let’s keep showing who we are through our abounding love!
