"A Time to Love"


John 13:34

34) A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye love one another.

35) By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

As we enter in to the month of February we often think of it as the month of love. We use this occasion to send flowers and cards to someone special in our lives. We try to let them know that this is a special time, and we want to let them know how much we care. But I would like to thank that showing love to those around us is not something we do once a year. It should be something we do every day of the year. By putting forth an effort to love those around us we’re fulfilling the commandment that Jesus Christ our precious Lord and Savior told us to do. Three times in two verses he commands us to “love one another.” We are able to love one another only when we realize how much Jesus loves us. How much should we love one another? Jesus said, “as I have loved you.”

The question, I guess, is when is it time to love one another? Is it in February? Or is it all day, every day, for God’s glory. After all Jesus said we should “love one another.” There is no reason we can’t love one another! And right now is the time to love.


Yours in Christ,

Pastor Jeff
