Our Gospel reading for today begins by reminding us to abide in Christ’s love, and as we gather as the Body of Christ for worship we know that love in a real way. Yet we all know that this does not simply take place in church, so how then do we abide in Christ’s love out in the world? Well, if we look a little further in our Gospel for today, Jesus gives us the answer to this question when he states, “ If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love…This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.”

John 15:9-17

Abiding in Christ’s Love
