Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!

John 15:10 (RSV)

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

As many of us have heard it say: Love is not just a feeling, but it is action. Christians are called to show our love for God by being obedient to Jesus’ teachings. For us, Christian Vegetarians, that includes our diet. We are being obedient to God by taking care of our bodies, alleviating animal suffering, helping restore environment and, what I consider very important, witnessing to our neighbors through our lifestyle of non-violence, love, respect, compassion and mercy for God’s creation.

Let’s thank God for providing us with Jesus’ example and ministry and pray for strength in remaining obedient (although imperfectly) and for effectiveness in witnessing.
