The commandment of Jesus in John 13:34 is to love one another. When we are raised with Christ to new life, the image of new life is understood in love. This week we’ll be exploring different places in Scripture where true love is displayed.
2 Timothy 1.6-7 (NRSV)
For this reason I remind you to rekindle the gift of God that is within you through the laying on of my hands; for God did not give us a spirit of cowardice, but rather a spirit of power and of love and of self-discipline.

The spirit of power, love, and self-discipline is a gift from God. Often times, our eyes are closed and ears are shut to see or hear this gift. In prayer, ask that God’s Spirit would empower you to keep your eyes wide open and your ears close to the ground so that you can see and hear those who feel unseen and unheard. When we see and hear these people, we are giving the gift of God’s love to those who are in need.
