Where Is The Love?



John 13:31-35

"So, when he had gone out, Jesus said, “Now the Son of Man is glorified, and God is glorified in Him. If God is glorified in Him, God will also glorify Him in Himself, and glorify Him immediately. Little children, I shall be with you a little while longer. You will seek Me; and as I said to the Jews, ‘Where I am going, you cannot come,’ so now I say to you. A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”

Jesus said by love ALL will KNOW that you are My disciples. So where is this sacrificial agape love being lived out in the lives of the disciples of Jesus? And why don't we see the love of the brethren that we read about in the book of Acts?

Acts 2:44-47

"Now all who believed were together, and had all things in common, and sold their possessions and goods, and divided them among all, as anyone had need. So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved."

The day is coming when the elect of God will be gathered together again and have ALL things in common, the day is coming when the supernatural divine love of Christ will once again be manifested in the hearts of His disciples and ALL WILL KNOW that they are HIS disciples!

John 15:11-13

“These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full. This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends."

In Jesus,
