By This Shall Men Know....

By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another (John 13:35)

The proof that we are disciples of Jesus Christ is whether or not we have love for one another. Jesus Himself said so. We do not prove ourselves to be Christians:
  • By forwarding silly e-mails in to everyone in our contact list and include a little note at the end saying “if you really love Jesus keep it going or somebody might die”

  • By the bumper sticker on your car

  • By the music you listen to

  • By the political party you support

  • By the products or companies you boycott

  • By the version or brand of Christianity you embrace

Nope. None of these things prove you are a Christian. Our Christianity is proven, tested, and authenticated in the context of relationships. It's not only what you believe that counts. It’s how you behave that matters.
