"So I give you now a new commandment: Love each other just as much as I have loved you. For when you demonstrate the same love I have for you by loving one another, everyone will know that you're my true followers." John 13:34-35 The Passion Translation Jesus broke it down in such basic terms. GO ➡️↘️⬇️↙️⬅️↖️⬆️↗️ LOVE ❤️💛💚💙💜💗 and the world will know you are following me! And they will follow too! It really is that simple!
This is what we are called to do! We are not called to judge. We are not called to do programs. We are not called to scare people into following! WE ARE TO LOVE!
Jesus was sent for several reasons: to be our advocate, our healer, our teacher, our savior but most of all He was sent to be our example.
It didn't end at the cross! That is where it started!!!! ALL THINGS BECAME NEW at the cross! Don't camp out there!! Jesus is no longer there! He moved on and we should supposed too.
At the end of the day, Jesus loves! While we walked this earth he showed us the love of God! He loves fiercely and passionately! His love is crazy!
He didn't use fear to coerce people to follow him. He didn't judge. In fact, he challenged people who did. He did what the Father told him. He was out loving people where they were, not in some building.
We are called to be Jesus' body on the earth today, doing what he did. And greater works are we supposed to do because He went to sit at God's right hand. He needed us to go into all the world and do what he did! LOVE!
I believe we are finally at a time where we are seeing the body of Christ emerge in love! I believe we are seeing the body finally "get" this New Testament - New Covenant direction and the body is beginning to walk it out!
I believe we are going to get to witness some extraordinary things in the coming months and years! I believe we are beginning to see what people have been praying for for centuries and never really understood: thy Kingdom come, thy Will be done, ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN!
That we were BORN FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS! DON’T MISS IT!
