When Jesus knew it was almost time for Him to leave earth and return to God the Father’s side, He did a lot of talking His disciples. One of the things He told them was, “By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.” John 13:35. He was telling them how to let everyone around them recognize that their faith was real. And Jesus wasn’t just talking about being nice to our friends, it’s way bigger than that (Matthew 5:43-48).
I just ran across a news story that shows Christians living Jesus’ words out and the eternal results the love they showed have had. The Christian Post reported on someone who had decided that there wasn’t any god at all. I’m not excited by what he says about his beliefs on the moral standards of the Bible (if we start saying anything like that is just cultural, we end up with a Bible made of mush), but I’m VERY EXCITED to hear about what he says about Evolution.
Let’s pray for him and his wife and that God’s Holy Spirit will continue to work in his heart and help our new baby brother to grow in grace and truth!!
As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith. Galatians 6:10
