We Know Love by This…

John 10:11-18

Jesus Christ is the good shepherd.  The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.  Through the Holy Spirit working within us, we are transformed into his likeness.  And we know love by this, that he laid down his life for us and that we also ought to lay down our lives for one another.

We start small.  All of us start small.  We learn to love, one person at a time.  We learn it over and over, because love often hurts us deeply—just as it hurt Jesus deeply.  We love because Christ loved us.  Christ’s healing power allows us to love again.  As we grow in Christ—as we grow in Christ—we recognize that we are all made in God’s image, we are all children of our creator.  We recognize that we are all brothers and sisters.  No one is left out and no one is left behind.
