The verses this month have progressed from affection to continuing to love. This week Peter tells us to love deeply. And with all of our hearts! Wow! The kind of love God tells us to have in this verse is much more than a superficial act. Faking deep love just isn’t possible.
Jesus told His disciples that the watching world, which includes your neighbors and your friends at school, will know you are a Christian by your love. It’s not optional to love your brothers and sisters. The good news is Jesus will give us His love, if we will ask Him, every time ours isn’t enough.
