SCRIPTURE: By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.-John 13:35
According to the Center for the Study of Global Christianity, there are approximately 45,000 Christian denominations in the world—with more than 200 in America. Most of those denominations have arisen due to doctrinal differences, choices which must be respected among people of good conscience. But too often splits among groups of Christians happen for less than noble reasons.
At the Last Supper with His disciples, Jesus gave them a “new commandment”: “Love one another; as I have loved you . . . love one another.” He then went on to say that their love for one another is what would distinguish them after He was gone (John 13:34-35). Their love for one another is what would let the world know that they were His followers. Thankfully, even in spite of differences, most Christian denominations express love for other groups. And believers in individual churches should do the same.
Consider ways to express love for your leaders and fellow believers—especially those with whom you may differ on some matters. Let Jesus love the Church and the world through you.
