Spiritual Foundations

 

Why did Jesus come to the world? According to the Bible, He came to the world to reveal the Father, to be a witness of the Father.

As followers of Christ, what is our witness?

We too represent God for others. Our witness of Him to people is how we love others. When we honor, love, and respect others with our words and actions we are accurately reflecting how God sees them. By loving people, we are exposing the potential He put within them to be great, significant, and powerful people.

John 13:34-35,  “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are My disciples, if you love one another.”

So you’ve taken the discipleship classes and attended the cell groups, yet the assignment according to Christ is to LOVE one another.
