Lent, Day 15: KEEP

Recite the Primo Credo Today in the Morning and in the Evening:

Hear, O Israel: the Lord our God, the Lord is one; you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength. The second is this: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these. ~Mark 12:29-31

Today, on the Fifteenth Day of Lent, we continue to discuss the Primo Credo. We will be meditating on it over the period leading up to Resurrection (Easter) Sunday; and we will be trying to remember to recite it daily, once in the morning and once again in the evening. For the last two plus weeks, we have stressed the importance of intentionality; thinking, feeling, and meaning the words as we repeat them- not just hollowly reciting them. Our goal is to let the words work in us, and hopefully through us, and back out of us.

Today’s Scripture Reading:

John 13:34

This is the Way I’ll Know You Love Me: Keep My Commandments (John 14:15)

(In other words: This is How I’ll know you love me-->If You Love One Another.)

This is the Way Others will know you are my disciples-->

If You Love One Another. (John 13:45)


Jesus replied, "But even more blessed are all who hear

the word of God and put it into practice." Luke 11:28 (New Living Translation, ©2007)

 It really is that simple.

Jesus doesn’t just call us to BELIEVE. He calls us to BE LIKE…

Jesus says:

Follow me…

Keep My Commands…

Love me…

Love one another…

Love your neighbor.

Being a Follower of Jesus involves your body,

not just your belief systems.


may you find ways to go beyond just believing in The Way of Jesus;

May you find ways to


living The Way of Jesus...
