DR CHARLES STANLEY IN TOUCH DEVOTIONAL 3 OCTOBER 2021
Sunday Reflection: Love for One Another
To get the most out of this devotion, set aside time to read the Scripture referenced throughout.
At the last supper, Jesus said to the disciples, “By this all people will know that you are My disciples: if you have love for one another” (John 13:35, emphasis added). Notice that He could have generalized by simple saying “love people.” But the Lord was being specific. He was talking to a particular group of men who knew each other well and spent time together day after day.
When we consider Jesus’ call to love, our mind often goes “out there,” skipping over the people we see day in and day out. However, the Lord was speaking to the disciples, who at this point had been together for three years and shared so much. Think about the ones you spend the most time with— your family or perhaps a roommate or coworker. The Lord’s words remind us that we’re to demonstrate God’s love not just in general ways to acquaintances down the street or groups abroad; we’re also to be intentional about loving those closest to us. Sometimes it’s this very specific kind of love that best shows the world who Jesus is.
THINK ABOUT IT
• This week, try pausing your concerns for “out there” and focus on the cares and concerns of one person you love.
Bible in One Year: Matthew 1-4
