Love One Another

October 28, 2021
By Jason Henderson

Without fail, whenever someone brings up the television show The Chosen, one of the first things they mention is something along the lines of “I love how they portray the’s like they are real people!” The apostles and other biblical characters were, in fact, real people. This means they walked around, ate,  slept, cracked jokes, cried, sneezed, and all the fun stuff that comes with being human. 

Often, in my mind, I lose sight of this. Emotions are seen as weaknesses, where we must control our anger or keep a stiff upper lip, instead of a normal part of living on this planet. Throughout the biblical narrative, we see emotion all over the place: Sarai laughed, Samson raged, Jeremiah lamented, Jesus wept. Our emotions can certainly cause problems--see: Samson--but they are also reminders of our humanity and avenues through which we connect with others. As we disciple, we shouldn’t be afraid to show others what we feel, because those feelings keep us from being boring robots. 

Laugh with each other. Cry with each other. Celebrate baseball success with each other. And through those things, reveal bits and pieces of yourself to another person in order to create a deeper connection and relationship. In other words, love one another, for love is of God.
