“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends".~ John 15:13
God demonstrated the greatest love by laying down His life for the World. He came down from heaven’s glory; was born of a virgin; was named Jesus (which means Saviour) to die for the sins of the World; He was a king who became a servant; He was rich and He became poor. God proved His great, amazing, unconditional, and wonderful love by wilfully choosing to give His life. He didn’t have to, but He did it because He is a God of true love, and He loves you!
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” ~ John 3:16
“For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.” ~ 2 Cor 8:9
Without God we would never know the true definition of “love”. His definition - the “greatest love” - is demonstrated in His sacrificial death.“...for God is love.”1 John 4:8
