Around the world Easter is celebrated with jubilation and dancing. It is no different in churches and homes all across Liberia, Africa.
As Holy Week continues, today we celebrate Maundy Thursday. Maundy comes from the Latin word mandatum, which means command, or new command. Today, just one day before his crucifixion, Jesus sat at the table with his disciples for the Last Supper. It was here that Jesus gave them a new command, "Love one another as I have loved you."
"The love of Christ drives us everyday to love those all around us."
What an amazing command from the Lord as he approached his death on the cross, for us. His disciples, and the world, would see just how great that love is!
That love of Christ drives us everyday to love our family, love our enemies, love our friends, to love those all around us. It drives us to love those half-way around the world. It drives us to love on the disenfranchised in Liberia, Africa.
This Maundy Thursday do not forget the words of Christ, to love one another. He has perfectly shown us what true love looks like.
