Know Love

Filed under: Bible,Christ,devotion,God,Jesus — by ginrich @ 1:00 am

1 John 3:16. We have come to know love by this:that Jesus laid down his life for us; thus we ought to lay down our lives for our fellow Christians.

The way we have come to know love (remember God is love) is through the sacrifice of Jesus Who shed His blood for us. There may come a time where we must physically give our physical bodies to death for others but this is not what John means in this verse. He means for us to be willing to put the needs of others before our needs; put the desires of others before our own desires. Through these kind of actions we can communicate the importance and worth not only to ourselves, but their importance and worth God has for them.. We are surrounded by people who have low self-worth. Let us lift the up and shoe them how much God loves them.
