An Encouraging Word
John 15:13 says, "Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends." Jesus calls us His "friend". There is no greater love than the love God has for us. Jesus laid down His life for us! In 1 John 4:19, it says, "We love Him because He first loved us." We owe Him our love !! Our love is imperfect and it waivers but His love is steadfast. He is always there for us. He is the greatest example of love. We are to model His love. 1 John 4:11 says, "Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another." We should daily be sharing the love of God with others. If others see His love in us they will get a glimpse of Him. To some we are the only Jesus they will ever experience. So, let's do our best to let His love shine through us so others can begin to know and experience Him.
