A new type of Love

"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." John 13:34-35

This is not the first time Jesus teaches love, however; this is a new teaching of love. Jesus refers to loving people the way that he loved his disciples. This is the way a father loves his son. The way God, the father loves us. The way Jesus loves his disciples is the way that the disciples should love others. This is the true vision of Jesus' mission, to share the love of God with people. People will know that we are Disciples of Christ by sharing his love. This is the true meaning of Easter, God's love, Jesus, given as a gift so that he could conquer death and we could have eternal life.

The baptism of Jesus Christ

THE VOICE OF ONE CRYING IN THE WILDERNESS, 'MAKE READY THE WAY OF THE LORD, MAKE HIS PATHS STRAIGHT.'" John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. And all the country of Judea was going out to him, and all the people of Jerusalem; and they were being baptized by him in the Jordan River, confessing their sins. And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him. And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Mark 1:3-
