In last Sunday’s Gospel from John 13:34 Jesus gave his disciples a new commandment, “love one another just as I have loved you. By this everyone will know you are my disciples.”
Hence Jesus was challenging the disciples to live a faith that went beyond words but was demonstrated through their actions. The very challenge Christians face today in their own lives. I believe that by exhibiting positive actions it inspires others in their own faith and encourages us to persist in the task of seeing the good in others no matter how trying the circumstances. Furthermore it is amazing how differently I judge the words and actions of others when I examine the circumstances from their point of view.
This was one of the greatest challenges Jesus gave his disciples and he also asks us to demonstrate in our lives today.
