The essence of God is love and God cannot but transmit love. This farewell address by Jesus instructs us to love one another. We are asked to transmit this love to others, because we have been gifted with a relationship with him. By showing love we are revealing God to the world.
This love is not a sentimental feeling. We witness to this love by who we are, what we do with our lives and how we treat others. You are invited to reflect and to open your heart to see how you are relating to those around you, with yourself and with God?
