I hear the Spirit of the Lord say, “Have I not commanded you to love one another as I have loved you? In these turbulent and uncertain times, I need my people to come together and stand shoulder to shoulder. I need you to love one another so that the world will know you belong to me. Will you lay down your own prejudices and ideas, and allow me to move you into a place of loving acceptance of one another? Will you choose to see each other as I do – made in my image? Will you work together and allow me to bring peace into these times of unrest?”
A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.
