Let Us Be Known By Our Love

 

Let Us Be Known By Our Love


"I find it surprising that one of the last prayers that Jesus prayed on earth was that we, his followers, would be one. It’s also surprising that soon after Jesus prayed this prayer, he was betrayed by one of his own. It’s a tragic picture. With a kiss Judas betrays the man that stooped down to wash his feet, disrupting the very unity Jesus prayed for.
Too often, we, as believers, have pointed the finger at Judas, all the while overlooking the giant plank that lies in the eye of the body of Christ. We too have failed at living into the prayer that Jesus prayed. We have abandoned one other. We’ve forgotten to fight for unity, to endure in long-suffering, to lay down our personal agendas and preferences for something greater." (Micah Massey)
