When he had left, Jesus said, “Now the Son of Man is glorified, and God is glorified in him. If God is glorified in him, God will also glorify him in himself and will glorify him at once. Children, I am with you a little while longer. You will look for me, and just as I told the Jews, so now I tell you: ‘Where I am going, you cannot come.’
“I give you a new command: Love one another. Just as I have loved you, you are also to love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
John 13:31-35 (CSB)
More than words or arguments, stances or theologies, we will reflect Jesus by our love for one another. This love will cost us as it cost Him. It will require more dying to ourselves than we’d like, and it will sometimes mean being misunderstood — even by those who share the same faith and believe in the same Jesus. And yet, when we can love one another with all our differences and disagreements, when we try to see the image of God in the other person, we will not only show the world who Jesus is, but we will also know Him more ourselves. May we know Him more and make Him known.
