6th Sunday of Easter - B
“Love one another as I love you”
We continue today’s Gospel where Jesus left off last week in John Chapter 15.
And the theme of last week is to remain in Jesus.
One can be with another person against one’s will.
Not with Jesus.
Today, Jesus explains that to remain in him is to remain in his love. And this divine love, the truest form of love, is never forced. Even when he lays down his life for us, we are still free to accept or reject that love.
This is the kind of love Jesus has for us.
And to this kind of love, Jesus calls us, “Love one another as I love you.”
