Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 228

  1. “As I have loved you, so you must love one another” (John 13:34).

What a sizeable message load for a single verse to carry. Love like I have loved might be the most overwhelming command contained in the Scriptures. When we consider the sacrificial servanthood Jesus demonstrated–the complete laying aside of self to come among us in the Incarnation, the welcoming of the daily press of hordes of the hurting, the unlimited patience with His disciples’ inability to understand, the steady endurance of their self-centeredness, and ultimately the choice to die that they (and we) might live–just go do that seems beyond the scope of possibility. But every time we lower ourselves to raise someone up, every time we give rather than take, every time we escape convenience and reach out toward someone’s need, we demonstrate that we know Him, that we understand what He has done for us, and that we have grasped our true assignment.
