“Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples” (John 13:35 NLT).

LOVING ONE ANOTHER IS THE PROOF

Our greatest proof to the world that we are disciples of Jesus is that we love one another. While logical arguments, philosophical proofs, and existential questions may be helpful to open the mind. Our most powerful persuasion is love. Loving one another we will “prove to the world” that we are disciples of Jesus.
 
PRAYER: Dear Father, thank You for the great love You have shown us in Jesus, Your Son. For He is love incarnate. Now pour out Your love in us this day by Your Spirit. Help us to love one another so that the world might recognize that we are Your disciples. In Jesus’ name, amen.

STOP WORRYING. START TRUSTING.
The disciples were troubled in heart when Jesus talked about His impending departure from them. They were anxious and fearful about the future. But Jesus told them to replace their fear with faith.
 
Is your heart troubled today? You may not know what tomorrow holds, but you know who holds tomorrow. Stop worrying and start trusting in Jesus.

“The ear that hears the rebukes of life will abide among the wise” (Proverbs 15:31 NKJV).

From: May 24, 2017

There are ears that don’t hear. Not because they are physically deaf, but because they refuse to listen to correction. The ears of the fool filter out rebuke, but the wise are teachable, listening to constructive criticism. Those who are hearers and doers of the Word, will abide with the wise.

“and I will celebrate before the Lord. I will make myself yet more contemptible than this, and I will be abased in your eyes” (2 Samuel 6:21-22 ESV)

From: May 24, 2016

When David came leaping and dancing as he led the procession that brought the Ark into Jerusalem, his wife, Michal despised him for it. She spoke sarcastically to him as he arrived, saying, “How the king of Israel has honored himself today,” accusing him of acting “shamelessly” as one of the “vulgar” common people. In other words, she didn’t think his behavior was befitting a member of the upper class, much less a king. David’s response to her was revealing of his heart. He explained that he was “celebrating before the Lord,” not for men and certainly not for her. He further stated his intent to become even “more contemptible,” more undignified than this, when it came to worshiping the Lord. David’s worship was for God, not men. He didn’t care what men thought of him, only what God thought of him.

“By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another” (John 13:35 NKJV)

From: May 24, 2015

Our greatest apologetic is that we love one another. Intellectual arguments for creation, philosophical proofs for truth, and existential equations of reason are all helpful. But our most powerful persuasion is love. Seeing that we love one another as Jesus loved us, “all will know” that we are disciples of Christ.

“If you reject discipline, you only harm yourself; but if you listen to correction, you grow in understanding” (Proverbs 15:32)

From: May 24, 2012

Are you spiritually FAT (Faithful, Available, Teachable)? Great leaders are life-long learners. Can you show up on time and available for any task your God-given leader assigns? Do you take notes and read instructions? Do you ask questions and obey? Know-it-alls harm themselves, but FAT people prosper and grow!

“Anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father” (John 14:12)

From: May 24, 2011

What Jesus said to His disciples. What did Jesus do that we are called to do? How does His going to the Father cause our doing to be even greater? Are you involved in “greater things” for Jesus?
