My I.D. is His Love…

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”

-Jesus Christ
the Gospel of John
[NASB ’95]

They will know we are Christians…by our t-shirts?  Not hardly.  Although I have t-shirts of my own with Christian graphics & messages, this is not to be the central display of my identity as a disciple of Jesus Christ.  The central display of our identity as disciples is in His identity as Lord.  The Lord of Love.  The Lord Who Loves.  The Lord Who Gives Love.  The Lord Who Is Love (1 John 4:16).  The Lord Who Loves His Disciples & Has Called His Disciples to Love As He Loved.

This is a big deal because it is in knowing His love & displaying His love that the world will see His love…in us.  They will know we are Christians by our love.
