Have you been overwhelmed by the LOVE of JESUS lately?
In a world where we crave true love, look for authentic relationships, and seem to fail at the pursuit so much, it is refreshing to be reminded of the Love that Jesus Christ gave away for you and for me. Jesus, himself, spoke of how this love works with those who follow him in John 15 below:
9 “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. 10 If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. 11 I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. 12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
“To lay down one’s life for one’s friends” paints a picture of TRUE RECKLESS LOVE! As Jesus spoke to His disciples, he meant for their impact to be simple, LOVE. This overwhelming love from the Father was poured out in the loving sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the Cross, so that we might be overflowing with the love of Jesus.
How can the overwhelming love of Jesus be an overflowing supply to your family, your friends, and those in your day-to-day life?
THANK YOU, JESUS, FOR YOUR RECKLESS LOVE FOR US!!!
