Revolution of Love
Jesus summarised over 600 Old Testament commandments down to two - Love God and Love your neighbour! This seminar unfolds that concept.
What should a disciple look like? We know we’re all called to persevere, to continue in the word - all the important thing Jesus said to his followers. But there seems to be one element that we ignore to our peril. In John 13, Jesus states in no uncertain terms what he’s looking for:
“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another." John 13:34-35
Jesus is speaking to his disciples - this was not an open meeting. Opening his heart to his disciples (presumably the same 120 who were in the Upper Room on the Day of Pentecost) he addresses some very important issues - we cannot succeed as believers if we brush aside these instructions in chapters 13 to 17. He is calling us to consider what are the ingredients of genuine discipleship. These are very focused instructions - and seemingly the only way to find fulness of joy and fruitfulness.
This Seminar focuses on the Christian's obligation to love God and to love our neighbour.
