For His Father~Jesus said, “That the world may know that I love the Father, and as the Father gave Me commandment, so I do” (John 14:31).Notice that when you love someone you seek to please that person.
For His Church~“Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her” (Ephesians 5:25).
For His Saints~One example: “Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus (John 11:5).
For All Individuals~Jesus said, “For God [Jesus’ Father] so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son [Jesus Christ—The Messiah], that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved” (John 3:16-17).
the key question: “Who do you say that I am?” (Matthew 16:15). This is the most important question you will ever answer. If you do not answer it, or answer it incorrectly, you have made the biggest mistake anyone can make!
