love one another

These things I command you, that ye love one another.

John 15:17 KJV

LOVE

No simpler command there is than love,

Yet look at all the hate we’ve had since then,

As if we don’t know what He’s speaking of

Or it’s impossible, beyond our ken.

Just for today I beg you take this test

That all you meet is Jesus in disguise.

No matter what they do, how they’re expressed

They really are the Savior synthesized.

You must love everyone, not just pretend;

This is the reason why you still are here.

The Lord put you together for this end:

So you can share His love, each one endear.

It doesn’t matter if they love you back.

Your job is just to love without feedback.

7-22-15 With All Your Life

love one another

This is my commandment,

That ye love one another, as I have loved you.

John 15:12 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~~

The world is filled with malice, hate and scorn,

And every day is darker than the last,

But don’t despair, it is not time to mourn,

Just love your fellow man despite his caste.

The Savior loves you more than you can know,

He died for all your sins upon the cross.

If you love one another you will grow

To better understand His pain and loss.

If you show love to everyone you meet,

And give without a thought of some return,

The love of Christ in you is more complete,

And love begets more love with less concern.

This is the Lord’s command, that you should love

With all your life, as Jesus has above.

10-11-14 Love One Another

love one anotheru

I think I understand what Jesus meant

When He said all the world would know we’re His,

If this love that we share does represent

The love He has for us and who He is.

You are my sister more than blood could share;

You are my brother more than DNA;

This bond we have mere physics can’t compare;

We share the same sweet spirit all the way.

And O this love has power multiplied!

By faith we know there’s nothing we can’t do.

We glorify His name when it’s applied;

By prayer and through God’s will all things are new.

The joy that fills my heart when you’re around

Reflects His love for us, great and profound.

~~~~~~~~~~~

By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples,

if ye have love one to another.

John 13:35 KJV
