Labour in love – The new motto for 2014

Labour-in-Love-Jean-Luc-Schnieder-resizedThe year 2014 has a new motto for members of the New Apostolic Church, Labour in love. In the divine service on New Year’s Day in Stuttgart, Germany, Chief Apostle Jean-Luc Schneider, used the words of the Lord Jesus as an appeal to all Christians to make a special profession of faith: “By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”

The Chief Apostle said that his wish for all Christians and congregational activities in the New Apostolic Church is that all may Labour in love, adding that faith in Jesus Christ is exhibited through works produced by love. Concrete actions for the benefit of our neighbour are a firm component of our preparation for the return of Christ. To love our neighbours also means to share their burdens, in other words, to help alleviate the things that bring them suffering.
