Lent Day 38: LOVE
Blessed Maundy Thursday! The word "maundy" comes from Middle English and French and means "command". And so today, on the day where Jesus had his Last Supper and commanded his followers to always remember him, may we reflect on the idea that he bore the darkness of the cross so that we could step out into the light and be the adopted Children of Light.
Let us use this day to reflect on the words of the Apostle John:
John 13:34-35 (Contemporary English Version)
But I am giving you a new command. You must love each other, just as I have loved you. If you love each other, everyone will know that you are my disciples.
In these verses he expounded upon Jesus’ command, and described what it means to be His disciples.
May you love as you are loved...
may others know you are a disciple by your love...
