S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.
Shortly before Jesus’ death, He spoke to His disciples and told them the one action by which they would be recognized by all. He said, “If you have LOVE, then EVERYONE will know that you are my disciples.”
If you were setting out to change the world, certainly you would have a team who were on your side in agreement. Also, there would have to be something about you that set you apart from the rest. If asked this question, you might say, “Well, we’ll have a certain uniform that distinguishes us.” Or you might say, “There will be a special language that we speak, and it will signify that we are different.” Maybe you would have developed a special weapon that would cause the rest of the world to bow down. No matter your personal plans for world takeover, your conscripts would be asking, “How Will They Know?” Even before they asked Him, Jesus said, “They will know that you are my disciples because you have LOVE for one another!” That’s it! So easy to say and so hard to accomplish. Why? Because love is a daily decision you and I make toward each other. But it’s more than that. Love is a decision you make about and toward everyone on the planet, not just the ones you know by name. “How Will They Know?” They’ll know us by our love.
I ask this AM that you help me walk out of this house again today and simply LOVE everyone! Thank You Jesus! Amen
