It’s Not Complicated

John 15:12-17

“Relationships are complicated” is a mantra of our age. To question that mantra is to invite ridicule and scorn. Everyone knows that relationships are complicated, but sometimes we make things much more complicated than they really are. Jesus had a way of simplifying things to the point where a child could understand them, but a mature adult would be forced to grapple with the implications. Jesus did that for us when it came to relationships with his simple but profound call to love one another.
