Lenten Reflection for Maundy Thursday 3/28/2013

Love One Another

Love One Another

Psalm 116:1-2, 12-19 Exodus 12:1-42
1 Corinthians 11:23-26
John 13:1-17, 31b-35

I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I
have loved you, you also should love one another.
 —-John 13:1-17, 31b-35

Jesus was born in a time that like our times, was filled with strife. He proclaimed
to be the fulfillment of the law and prophesies. His message was one
of hope and love – love of God, love of self and love of everyone else without
exception. He brought the message directly from God of God’s love for us,
his creation. After two thousand years, Jesus message of love still is the
greatest message of all times. Everywhere you look, you can see God’s blessings,
in the beauty of a sunset, the majesty of the oceans, the forested mountains
and even the poke plant along the parking lot fence at St. Paul’s.
Thanks be to God for all our blessings and for sending his son, Jesus, to remind
us that love is the only thing that really matters.
