And this is his command: to believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as he commanded us. The one who keeps God’s commands lives in him, and he in them. And this is how we know that he lives in us: We know it by the Spirit he gave us.
Love one another. In England, local council results are published today. Elections are important; however, they define on which side of a political devide we find ourselves. Elections separate people into groups. Jesus calls us to love one another. God lives in we who believe; and it is the Holy Spirit himself who witnesses this amazing truth to us. 'We know it by the Spirit he gave us.' Let's love one another and live it out day by day.
Holy Spirit please keep me aware that I belong to the Lord Jesus. Help me to love. Amen.
