But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
– Romans 5:8
What is love?
So many people think they have the answer. In our culture today people say “I love you” everyday, all the time. I honestly don’t think people realize that love is not just an affectionate feeling toward another person. I’m not attacking people who frequently tell people they love them, I just want people to think. The love that Jesus exhibited on earth was a sacrificial love. Not just affection or infatuation; sacrifice. He literally died as a perfect being for those who were imperfect. That’s like someone deliberately hurting you and the next day you chose to die in their place because of your love for them.
We all know love is kind, love is patient…but love is also sacrifice. Giving up everything for the good of another person.
Love like Jesus did.
