John 13:35 (NKJV) By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”
Let’s see if I can reword the verse more simply: “By this all will know you are My disciples: if you have love for one another.” Nope, doesn’t get any simpler than that.
While there are certainly plenty of appropriate situations that call for us to voice our faith, overall, your life should testify of your Christianity by the demonstration of love towards others.
Especially your fellow Believers. “If you have love for one another”… does that mean everyone? In a general sense, yes, but more specifically, the world knows we follow Christ because we LOVE other Christ-followers.
Think It Over: Honestly… do you truly love other Believers? Not just in word or concept, but in attitude, service, time and energy? Do you love them only as the opportunity arises, or do you actively seek ways to love them? Show the world your love for Christ by your love for His disciples.
