ONE


by Deidra Riggs


Jesus didn’t say the world will know we are followers by our rhetoric, our political leanings, our charity work, or even by our knowledge of scripture.  He said the world would know us by our love for one another.  It’s so easy to put others at arm’s length, to lash out, to put up walls.


In ONE, Deidra Riggs calls us as to put our focus on self-preservation aside and like Jesus, make the first move toward reconciliation.  She helps us understand that we are secure in God’s inexhaustible love, making us free to love others lavishly – not just in what we do but in what we say, what we don’t say, what we will endure, and what we will forgive.
