Love, Pray: MLK

 "I submit to you that if a man has not discovered something that he will die for, he isn't fit to live."  Martin Luther King, Jr. 
Today is the day we honor the memory, the work and the accomplishments of Martin Luther King, Jr. He had passion for his cause and changed the lives of so many. His passion and courage inspire so many. 

Everytime I read this particular quotation, I am reminded of the words of Jesus in John 15:101-7:

"If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. 
These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full. This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.  You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.  No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you. You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you. These things I command you, that you love one another."

Have you discovered the the something for which you would die?
