God has made us to be together as the Body of Christ. Together. In Person.

Our Shepherd and Pastor Jesus taught us, “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.  By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:34-35

Often as followers of Jesus we want to love one another but we fail to understand “How” to love another in very real and practical ways. Consider these 14 instructions on how to love one another well for the glory of God and the hallowing of His name on the earth!
