“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13
What would you give a relative or friend in their time of desperate need? Your time, your money… your life? It may be well said that no sacrifice is too great for the people we love, but the fact of the matter is, our love is exclusive and often times, conditional.
God’s divine love for mankind surpasses our love for those we care for. It is inclusive, unconditional, and only found in the person of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ came to a world that hated and rejected Him but enduring the suffering and shame of the Cross, He died, was buried and rose again the third day —for you!
“For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.” John 3:17.
