WORDS FOR LIFE: April 24th 2016
V SUNDAY OF EASTER
Today in John’s Gospel we have read Jesus’ words during the Last Supper and his new Command to love one another. This Command shows three things:
- “God first loved us” (1 John 4,10). Here God takes the initiative.
- Jesus has always loved us even “while we were enemies”. (Rom.5,10)
- Jesus loves us till the end. The essence of his love is faithfulness.
