“Now I tell you to love each other, as I have loved you. The greatest way to show love for friends is to die for them…So I command you to love each other.”John 15:12-13, & 17
How have I shown this kind of radical love? Have I ever displayed a love for someone outside of my family that I’d give up my life for them? That sounds like a pretty tall order. I mean, I’ll do a lot for people. I’ll break through walls for some of my friends. I’ll bend over backwards to help someone out. And I genuinely like most people. But love them? Like this? It sounds like I have a whole lot more to learn about love.
How about you? Do you love like this?
