By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another. (John 13:35, NIV)
Most people who know me know that my mind has many song playlists running through them all of the time. The reason I say this is that as I have been working on this week’s sermon, Tina Turner’s song “What’s love got to do with it?” keeps running through my head. This is the second time in a year that that song has gotten stuck there during sermon prep time, and I think it isn’t as much to do with the song but the question itself - what’s love got to do with it?
You see for us, as Christians love means everything as we are called to grow in our understanding of God’s love, and then find ways to live out of it.
So – if you claim the name of Christ as a Christian then may you – may we love. Trust me, the world needs love.
