Love The Unlovable

And the scribes of the Pharisees, when they saw that he was eating with sinners and tax collectors, said to his disciples, “Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?” And when Jesus heard it, he said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick.

For a while now, most Saturdays here on God Running, we’ve been going through the book of John. And today we come to the part where Jesus says to us,

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.”

And then he goes on to say,

“By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”

John 13:34-35

Does that describe you? Is that what you’re known for, by all people? For loving just as Jesus loved? For loving like Jesus? I asked myself that question a number of years ago and the answer was a resounding “No!” So I set out to learn how I might change that answer. The result was the book you’re about to read. (Kindle, hardback, and paperback versions of the full book are all scheduled to come out in 2018.)

Here’s the introduction.
