Good morning, this is Topher, from Washington Church of Christ, bringing you a positive message minute.

Yes, I confess, I've been pulled over a time or two: twice when I was 16, once at 18, 21, 26, and 34.   Each and every time, those wonderful men in uniform wanted some information about me immediately, so they asked for my ID. 

In America, we have an amazing database system implemented that gives a lot of information about you based on the Identification Card that you give to the police officer, an ID card that you aren't supposed to leave home without

On Thursday of the Holy Week, just after Jesus has identified his betrayer, he gives his disciples an ID Card, a way that everyone would know who they serve, who they pledge allegiance to, whose follower they were.  In John 13, Jesus says, "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.  By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another."  (John 13:34-35)

Friends, an ID card is a useful thing to always have with you, but there is identification that is better than your driver's license that you shouldn't leave home without, Love. 

Today, choose to show an extra measure of the love of Christ to one another and others will know that you are His disciples.  You'll be glad you did.
