Jesus didn t say that the world would know we are his followers by our biting 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 Yet it s so easy to put others at arm s length to lash out to put up walls Deidra Riggs wants us to put our focus on self preservation aside and like Jesus make the first move toward reconciliation In One Riggs shows readers that when Jesus offered himself up in our place he was not only purchasing our salvation but also setting an example for us to follow She helps readers understand that they are secure in God s inexhaustible love making them free to love others lavishly not just in what they do but in what they say what they don t say what they will endure and what they will forgive Anyone who longs for unity in the church in their family and in their community will find in this book both inspiring examples of loving done well and encouragement to begin the often unnoticed hard work of building bridges with those around them
