Pastor Brian Brodersen teaches from John 13, and we see that Jesus predicts his betrayal and yet reminds his disciples to take hold of a new commandment–the commandment to love others as God has loved us.
Are you known by your love? Or are you known by your opinions and stance, your likes and dislikes? What would it look like to be known by the very act of loving others as God has loved us? May the witness of the church–which includes us–no longer be marred by our failure to love.
