“Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.” (John 15:13)
What a contrast the love of God is to the so-called “love” of our culture.
Our world loves you when you are young and beautiful; God still loves you when you are old and not so attractive.
Our world loves you when you are famous and a celebrity; God loves still you when you are unknown and a complete nobody.
Our world loves you when you are rich and powerful; God still loves you when you are penniless and weak.
Our world loves the extraordinary. God still loves the ordinary. People like you and me.
And God has demonstrated this love for us in a tangible way. Jesus said, “Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends” (John 15:13)
“Love will find a way. A lack of love will find an excuse. It has no limits”
Heavenly Father, Thank You for Your love. Because of Your love for me, I have forgiveness of sins and hope of heaven. Father, fill me with Your Spirit and help me to love others like You love me. Make me more like Jesus so that I can share Your grace and mercy with those around me. Use me today to show love. I praise You for the amazing love, Help me to grasp this love so that I will be equipped to love others in the same way. Strip me of any excuses and use me to reach others with the love of Jesus. In His name, Amen.
