John 19:26-27

Obviously, over the years, John's qualities of thundering personality and aggressiveness were controlled by the Holy Spirit and were wrapped in the love John learned from Jesus. This must be true, or Jesus would not have chosen John to take care of his mother. In fact, several witnesses in early church history record that John never left Jerusalem and never left the care of Mary until she died. Although John was passionate about truth, he was an example of love. Truth and love go hand in hand. Ask God to help you show his love today.
