We often talk about modeling our lives after Jesus or acting like Jesus, but Jesus doesn’t want us to simply look at him and try to imitate him. He wants to live in us (and us in him) in such a way that his heart and character emanate from us; that we become like him — beings of love, joy, compassion, truth, generosity; beings who love the world so much that living that love becomes our sole purpose in the world. Do you know how that happens? That’s what we’ll explore in this sermon. Our scripture reading comes from John 15:1-8.
