A New Commandment

When Jesus gave his “new commandment”, he gave it at the last supper just before his crucifixion. He gave it to his disciples, the 12 who were gathered with him in the upper room, NOT to a large crowd on a mountain.

If we were to actually take that commandment and be serious about it, it would mean that we would change the way the world sees God. They would see a house in order, undivided and strong. They would start to believe we could behave that way towards them and they would cease to be presented with the angry and judgemental God we give them now.

He commanded us to “love ONE ANOTHER”, because then “By this shall all know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another”. Not because we love the world, but because we love one another.

Loving the world comes out of loving one another. We need to get our priorities sorted out.
