Rev Dr Greg Elsdon
Easter 6 – When Jesus issued a commandment for us to love one another the way he loved us, did it mean that we have to do it because Jesus said so? No, we are not being ordered to love. We are being encouraged and invited to abide in God's love, to live in it and stay connected with it, and if we do that we'll find ourselves empowered to share that love with others. We were reminded that it was Mothers Day, and that each of us has started life abiding in our mother's womb. The love of Jesus is not to be seen simply as an example to follow, but as the source and sacred place from which our love originates. We are invited to drink our fill from the source which is Christ. What we take in from Christ, we can give out to the world.
John 15:9-17
