A Daily Devotion for Friday, January 27
"If you love me, keep my commands."
Jesus made this simple for the disciples, unlike some of his previous instructions and parables. We can show our love and loyalty to Christ by living as he would have us live. We can live in this world, but continue to resist being of this world. We can focus on loving and accepting others, mirroring the love of Christ. There is a lot of love in this world, and when we recognize and promote this love, we are being loyal to Christ.
Father God, help me to focus on the good in this world, and on the ways in which I can live out your commands. Showing love to others is a first step.
