John 15:12; "This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you."
By REV. FR. PAUL ANIGBORO

Servanthood is an essential part of true Christian living. Jesus emphasized it during the Last Supper, saying that he came not to be served, but to serve, and that likewise, in following him, we should serve one another. Why? Because service is an act of true love. In today's Gospel reading, he describes love as the ultimate gift of service: laying down one's life for one's friends.
 
To remain in his love, he says, we have to love as he loves, even to the point of making sacrifices for one another. Loving others is not always convenient or pleasant. Loving others does not always fit into our agendas. But the more difficult it is, the more like Jesus we become -- that is, if we choose the path of love.
 
Lord, help us to love as you loved us. As we take up our daily task today, may God's favour and blessings never depart from us. Amen. 
 
Good morning and do have a wonderful week ahead. God loves you.
