A DISCIPLE LOVES LIKE JESUS DID

Naked Mole Rat

 “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)
Have you ever tried to love the unlovable? Sure you have. And if you’re like me, you found it very difficult. We’re confronted every day with people who are rude, insensitive, and downright mean. But we know better than to write them off, because when we take a close look in the mirror, we can see some of the same characteristics in our own lives. The Scripture says that “…while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God” (Rom 5.10). We really didn’t have the image of a cute little puppy. It was probably more like trying to hug a buzzard. In fact, our actions proved us to be hostile to Him (maybe more like a ticked-off Naked Mole Rat). And yet, He loved us…to death. That is how Christ loved us and how He commands us to love others. We have the ultimate example to follow.  Keep loving the unlovable.
