John 13:35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
So many of us have so many things we might say about our testimony to the world. We would say that it is our dedication or discipline that proves we are His. We might attribute our holy living as our best witness, but Jesus had something else to say. Jesus said that they would know we were His disciples by our love.
It is not by our prayer in the restaurant. It is not by our clean-cut living. It is not by our good works but by the fact that God has given us a genuine heart of love for each other and others. People should be able to notice an atmosphere of love when they get around God’s people.
How am I expressing love? Am I making it clear that I love? Do others see a spirit of love in me? That is the question for today.
