LOVE: JOHN 13:31-35 NRSV
When he had gone out, Jesus said, “Now the Son of Man has been glorified, and God has been glorified in him. 32If God has been glorified in him, God will also glorify him in himself and will glorify him at once. 33Little children, I am with you only a little longer. You will look for me; and as I said to the Jews so now I say to you, ‘Where I am going, you cannot come.’ 34I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. 35By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
- What are some ways that God shows love for you? What are some ways that others show you they love you? How do you show your love for others?
Risen Christ, thank you for loving us enough to go to the cross for us. Help us to obey your commandment, to love another as you first loved us. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
