Daily Word Of God
John 13:31-33a, 34-35
When Judas had gone, Jesus said: ‘Now has the Son of Man been glorified, and in him God has been glorified. If God has been glorified in him, God will in turn glorify him in himself, and will glorify him very soon. My little children, I shall not be with you much longer.
‘I give you a new commandment: love one another; just as I have loved you, you also must love one another. By this love you have for one another, everyone will know that you as my disciples.’
Today's Pointers on God's Word
As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?
- Jesus relates to His disciples with much gentleness and love, for He knows how difficult it is for them to accept and be faithful to the Truth that He teaches. He addresses them as “Little Children”
- To be disciple of Christ, the Love of God and showing this love to one another through humble service is its foundation. Then, Jesus says, we will be “glorifying” Him and His Father.
- We are all called to “glorify” God through our daily living. Have your lifestyles and relationships with people glorified God? Will you continue to do so? How is the Lord challenging us to glorify Him and His Father?
