Vine and the Branches, cont’d

John 15:12-17

Jesus tells his disciples that the model of love is to sacrifice one’s life for friends. As has been made clear, those with him do not yet understand the limitless love Jesus has for them, nor do they understand what is expected of them in the work ahead.

Prayer: Jesus, I am not sure I alone have the courage to sacrifice myself or my life for others, as you did by your suffering and death. I do know that I am capable of offering myself in small ways every day.
