Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. (John 15:13 NIV)
Jesus laid it down all throughout His life. He laid it down when He healed the sick, when He touched the untouchable, and when He cast out demons. This all culminated when He laid down His life for us. His sacrifice continues to this day to give and give and give. And for this we worship Him.
The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness. (Jeremiah 31:3 NIV)
