John 13:35 – You Are My Disciple If..

John 13:35 – You Are My Disciple If..
By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another."


I once asked Mother Teresa how she converted 15,000 men out of the gutters of Calcutta. “How, after dragging these poor mortals into your hospice could you ever evangelise them and teach them the gospel?”

“Well,“ She said, “I didn’t. When I took care of them and showed them love, I would say to them, ‘Would you like to hear about Christ?’
And they would say, ‘Is Christ like you? Is Christ like you?’

‘No,’ I would say, ‘but I try to be like Him.’
Then I want to be a Christian.’ “
It was that simple.
That is the way we should act. So that the world will, without ever hearing a word from us, know about us and what we stand for.
