Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 227

  1. “A new command I give you, Love one another” (John 13:34).

There it is–the centerpiece statement of the assignment Jesus is leaving behind. Love each other. Like a mother who’s leaving her kids at home alone for the first time, Jesus knows that any difficulties will best be faced with love and mutual strength. It will be the best parts of their relationships with each other that will carry them through in healthy ways. They must be intentional in such effort for their will be much that will tempt them to pull apart. But “love each other carries a deeper reality too. Only when they love will they keep the light on Jesus’ mission. Only when they love will His purposes go forward. Only when they love will people realize that they belong to Him.
