Love one another!
Of all the identifying marks of a Christian, writes Weaver, Jesus said love would be the thing that gives us away. “By this all men will know that you are my disciples,” He said, “if you love one another” (John 13:35). Agape is to be our signature – the unconditional, never-ending love of God flowing through and out of our lives. We need a love that loves “in spite of” and “because of.” In spite of rejection, hardship, or persecution, we love. Because of the great compassion God lavished upon us, we share it with our world – both in words and in sacrificial service. We’ve been filled with great treasure for one purpose: to be spilled.
