Quick, what does a spiritual person look like? How could you tell a poser from the real deal? What  makes a disciple?

If we listen to others, church attendance, hours of prayer, Bible knowledge, our stance on abortion or sexuality, or even whether or not we say grace or wear a cross would be on the list.

It was not on Jesus' list. He said that we will know real disciples from a posers by whether or not they practice sacrificial love. Whether or not they go out of their way for the benefit of others. We know the health of a person's relationship to God through experiencing their relationship with others.

That's it!

Will you be a poser or the real deal today?

My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.
Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. John 15:12-13 (NIV)

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
John 13:34-35 (NIV)

But if we say we love God and don’t love each other, we are liars. We cannot see God. So how can we love God, if we don’t love the people we can see?
