There is a story about the Apostle John at the end of his life. He was the pastor at the church in Ephesus, and at this point he was so old that he could no longer walk. Sunday after Sunday they other elders would carry him in on a mat and set him in the middle of the assembly. From this mat he would teach. At one point he would just mutter the words "beloved love one another, beloved love one another" This went on for several months. Finally one of the elders said to him, "Brother John that is a great message, but don’t you think we could hear something else." Then the old pastor looked at him and said "when we learn this lesson we will move on to the next one"
