John 15 says that the world will know we are His disciples if we love one another. John David and I both have been blown away by how our friends have lived this out over the past 4 days and have loved us well. I mean, the fact that our neighbors dropped what they were doing to watch Lyla for 2 days and tag-team taking care of her, that multiple people have brought us meals, sent such encouraging notes and texts, offered to babysit Lyla so that we can have a date night, etc, etc...we are blown away!! And this is not to say that we are just so popular. It is to give glory to GOD that HE has poured out His love on us through others. It is a testimony to what it looks like to live in community and to be plugged into a church and to have friends that are abiding in Christ. And we just want to say THANK YOU!! Thank you for bearing fruit in our lives. I am so encouraged, after hearing the message this morning at church, to have experienced first hand this Scripture being lived out through others.
