Greatest Commandment

John 15:12-13
“This is my commandment: love one another as I love you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”

That’s it in a nutshell. That’s the message. Love one another as God loves us. Jesus said that if we know Him then we would know God. Jesus lived His life by channeling love, mercy, forgiveness and compassion to all…even when He was persecuted and killed. What could prove God’s love more than to be totally and thoroughly rejected…but then to respond with forgiveness? From the cross He asked God to forgive “for they know not what they do.” That is unconditional Love. Allow the awe and wonder of it to fill you! Now…God commands us to live the same way.

Suggested song of the day– “Salvation” on the Live to Love album.
