Week 5 Biblical Passage

The Biblical passage that I will be discussing is John 13:34,35. It states, “A new command I give you: Love one another. as i have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” NIV Study Bible Zondervan (2011:1795) I feel that these are Jesus’s words since they are in red. I infer these verses to mean that we are to love one another  as Christians regardless what the other person may have done to you. If someone ask you for food, clothing, money, rides, etc., your not suppose to say no because you feel that they have it or that they should go get a job or already have a job. If someone is misusing your kindness that’s Gods job to handle it not for us to judge. We also have to forgive people,and ask others for for forgiveness if we have offended them. For example, if you are a Christian and you are trying to encourage  a non Christians about going to church and becoming Christians they will be looking at your actions,words, lifestyle, etc., and if they see anything that’s not of God  in you it will totally turn them away. So, if they can’t see Jesus in you what’s the use in belaboring the point on telling them something about God when your not practicing what you preach. God does look at our heart, but man doesn’t so we have to show love to everyone at all times because Jesus showed us a great love in dying for us.
