How will we be known?

John 13:35..”By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”

I don’t have time to flesh this out today, but I will soon. Here is the question for us to ponder. Why are we to be known by our “love”? Why not our wisdom? Or our giftedness? Or our brute strength, good looks, personality, ability to make our own clothes? Why is love to be the defining attribute for followers of Christ? And is it by love that we personally are known?

Much more later.

I'm one of the pastors at First United Methodist Church in Lexington, Kentucky where I've served for the past thirteen years. The sub-title of this blog is "Grace is no accident" which happens to be the defining reality of my life. God's grace (gift) is the reason we have breath in our lungs and hope in our hearts.
