Verse of the Day (February 14, 2020)

Verse of the Day (February 14, 2020) #BMSeminary – The newness of the new commandment can be understood only in light of the finished work of Jesus. God has always called his people to a life of neighbor love (Lev. 19:18), reaffirmed by Jesus as the second great commandment (Matt. 22:36–40). But the new commandment presupposes a new paradigm. The greatness of Jesus’ love for us is now the motivation for our loving others. If we love Jesus truly and deeply, we will love what and whom he loves—the unlovely, the oppressed, those very different from us, and those whose actions have damaged us. This confirming sign of our discipleship is not a badge of our commitment to Jesus; it is rather the beauty of Jesus’ commitment to us. Discipleship is not a program for which we sign up; it is a whole new way of life for which we have been raised up. (Gospel Transformation Study Bible)
