35 By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
Who am I? What do I want to be known for? What would I want my legacy to be? John 13:35 states that people will know that I am Jesus girl by my love. It is not stated that people will know that I am a disciple by my trying to make everyone happy, or by pretending to be okay when I am not it. It says that people will know that I am follower of Christ by my love. For me to show this kind of love, I need God’s love to take me over. I need to live knowing how depth of God’s love to me. I need to be preaching the gospel to myself daily, and asking God to help me live it out. I need to make sure that I am feasting on truths from God’s word and really letting His word get into my mind and heart, so that I can recognize what is truth and what is lie, and choose to be defined by God’s truth. My word for 2017 is Yours, and I want to remember that I belong to God. God is in control, and I need to trust in His plan. Times up 🙂
