"No Greater Love"

 

“No Greater Love”

 

“This is My command:  Love one another as I have loved you.  No one has greater love than this, that someone would lay down his life for his friends.”      John 15:12&13

 

This message of our Lord Jesus Christ to His disciples, when He was preparing them for what was about to happen.  The trials, the beating, the cross, they were the things that Jesus was facing.  This was a STRESSFUL time for the men, who followed Him.  They fussed with each other, because their anxiety level was high.  This was NOT the attitude that the Lord wanted from His followers.  So, He proceeded to TEACH them the meaning of the word LOVE.

 

He URGED them to OBEY His command to LOVE one another, and to LOVE like He LOVED them.  They should be WILLING to lay down their life for each other.  They MUST UNDERSTAND why He MUST DIE.  He went on to say that “No one has GREATER LOVE than to be WILLING to die for their friends.  Jesus was OBEYING the will of His Heavenly Father, the ALMIGHTY GOD, who so LOVED the world that He took on flesh and gave HIMSELF as a SACRIFICE for ALL the SINS of ALL mankind, THINK ABOUT IT!  God gave His LIFE to SAVE yours, and that is the GREATEST LOVE of ALL.

 

When I think about what the world is experiencing NOW with the COVID-19 Virus, and ALL the NURSES, DOCTORS, LAW-ENFORCEMENT, and FIRST-RESPONDERS, those PRECIOUS SOULS who are on the FRONT LINE, risking their OWN LIVES to SAVE others, who are MOSTLY strangers, I THANK GOD for EACH ONE and their DEDICATION and WILLINGNESS to exemplify the LOVE of GOD.  THANK YOU ALL!!! NOW, I know why the NURSES, especially are called: “Angels of Mercy!” 

 

While they are concerned with SAVING LIVES, God is CONCERNED with SAVING SOULS.  This life is TEMPORARY.  We ALL have an appointment with DEATH, and that is one appointment you WILL MAKE.  When your time comes, you will NOT be given a choice of whether you want to keep the appointment, but it is INEVITABLE, you WILL make that appointment.  GOD is in CONTROL!  Now, if you are NOT a TRUE CHILD of the LIVING GOD, you have a lot to be concerned about, because your destiny will be an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS and NO WAY TO ESCAPE.  However, you can CHANGE your DESTINY by TURNING AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle and TURNING TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. CONFESSING you sins to Him, and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS.  BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and EXPERIENCE the GREATEST LOVE that WAS, IS, and EVER will be. And spend your ETERNITY in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS.  Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!
