    ‘Tis better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all’. But is the same statement true when it is applied to our relationship with God? Is the same statement true when it is applied to our relationship with our fellow believers?

    Jesus said, ’this is my command: Love one another.’ How does that work? It is easy to see how you can obey a command not to lie, or steal or commit murder – but how can you command somebody to love somebody. How is that possible?

    Verse 12: ‘My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you’. Verse 17: ‘This is my command: Love each other’.

    What is church? If I asked you that question this morning how would you answer? In just one word – what would you say? Boring, irrelevant, out of date, hypocritical – or would you say that it is a place of joy, hope, love, companionship, caring?

    What does it mean to wash the feet of others? It means humbling yourself - you get down where the need is – and you do something about it. In our culture the need is not to wash feet as it was in Bible times. But there are many, many practical needs all a

    Prayer and suffering need not be exclusive of one another. As one connects with the other – as our suffering connects with our praying, then a cry goes out to the heavenly realms which God cannot ignored.
