9/18/12 Daily Devotion

John 15:13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.

God has demonstrated His love for us through the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross of Calvary. Jesus willingly laid down His life that we might have a pathway to forgiveness. He willingly allowed His life to be retracted from existence that we could live eternally in the presence of God. If that’s not love, then who can ever begin to define love? Think of your friends, and consider those within your family. How many among them would be willing to give up their lives for you? Not withstanding a few expected positive responses, most might state that as truth, but would not consider it if the moment arrived. Jesus, out of love, laid down His life for us, and if it was necessary He would do it again, simply because of the love that He has for each person upon this earth.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, Your love for me is so overwhelming and so undeserved. Please help me bring this same love I cherish into the lives of a multitude, that they might be given the opportunity to experience that which I have within my life.
