1/27/2021 – A New Commandment

John 13:34-35 – “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.
The love of Christ for us transcends the mind;
The heart cannot approach in poet’s words.
To understand agape love refined
Is like a gusty wind controlled by birds.
Suffice to say His love is better shone
Considering the needs of others first,
Directed by the Spirit’s guidance known,
Done in the moment and so unrehearsed.
Love one another as He loves you so,
And all the world will see this manifest
Your innate demonstration lets them know
This action multiplies to leave all blessed.
            A new commandment Jesus gives to you:
            Love one another as He loves you too.
