Jesus said, “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” ~ John 13:34-35 (NASB)

Be careful with your words. Speak life. Speak encouragement. Speak truth in love. Be careful what you post on social media. Please be careful, the lost are watching and listening and the Lord is watching and listening. “Watch the way you talk. Let nothing foul or dirty come out of your mouth. Say only what helps, each word a gift. Don’t grieve God. Don’t break his heart. His Holy Spirit, moving and breathing in you, is the most intimate part of your life, making you fit for himself. Don’t take such a gift for granted.” ~ Ephesians 4:29-30 (MSG)
Love one another. Love with the love of Christ. By known by your love. Let all that you do be done in love (1 Corinthians 16:14).
“God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins. Dear friends, since God loved us that much, we surely ought to love each other.” ~ 1 John 4:9-11 (NLT)
Love with the gentle, tender, sweet, sacrificial love of Christ.
