John 13:35 (NASB) … By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”
I had never met him. While waiting in a long line to get into a recent event, a gentleman entered the end of the line with his wife. As the line began to move, I noticed that the gentleman was on oxygen and walking was difficult at best. I could have just minded my own "P's and Q's," but I took a bold step. I told the man and his wife, to cut the line at the front, so he didn't have to struggle to wait and walk. Today's verse speaks of men knowing that we are His disciples by how we love one another. I could tell the wife didn't want or expect anyone to let him cut the line, but I gently asked another man way in the front of the line to allow the gentleman to cut. “No problem,” he replied and the gentleman and wife stepped in front of them. I didn't share a Bible verse or the gospel message, but I shared love. I share this with you as an example not for any other reason but to bring glory to God. A simple act, a helping hand, for others can be done by anyone. That's if we choose to be known as His disciple. Are we known by our actions? Remember the world is watching for signs, wonders, and miracles to help them believe. Are you helping?
