Journaling Lent: Day 36, The Way, Truth & The Life

Jesus said, "I give you a new command: Love one another. Just as I have loved you, you must also love one another."

John 13:31

This is not a recommendation nor a request. It is a command. 

If we get to a point where we are measuring how much we distribute love and care for others, then we are missing the point. Jesus said many things during His earthly life, but few times does he make such a bold declaration that cannot be misinterpreted. 

Love one another.

There are zero qualifiers or disclaimers. We are to simply love others as He loves us.

He is the way, truth, and the life. If we love others, then we show them the way, truth, and the life.
