“No Greater Love than This” says Jesus….oh and it’s the 6th Week of Easter Weekly Update
“This is my commandment: love one another as I love you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” (John 15:13)
In preparing our hearts to be ready for the Mass this weekend where Father Don is preaching and will be blessing all our wonderful Mothers, we hear of perhaps one of the most direct and summative lines of all Scripture. The command to love one another (family, friend, enemy, and stranger alike) is tasked to all of us who dare call ourselves Christian, and here’s the thing, it ain’t optional. “This I command you: love one another.” (John 15:17).
“Laying down” our lives might mean embracing the inconvenience of bearing a coworker’s burdens, dealing with an annoying stranger, or losing sleep because of a crying child. But these moments are little “schools” of love where our hearts are stretched so as to increase our capacity for love.
“It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you.” (John 15:16). It should be oddly comforting that God believes us to be worthy to participate in the spread of the Gospel message, through our words and actions. Because if God calls us to the task, it means He will equip us for the job.
