“As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.” – John 15:9 (KJV)
Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God, and the Father loved Him so much. Thus, He confirmed it by saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased” (Matthew 3:17). He protected Him even from the womb and saved His earthly family Joseph and Mary from shame and divorce, so that Jesus Christ as a young child could be nurtured and trained in the fear of God. The Most High saved His life as a baby from the hands of Herod (Matthew 2:16–18). As a man, the Father gave Him His full support throughout His ministry on earth.
Beloved, this is the kind of love He received from the Father, and He demonstrated the same love to us by dying on the cross, to save us from our sin so that we can be reconciled to God.
Beloved, this divine love is what He wants us to continue in. He wants us to support one another, be kind toward one another, and to sacrifice for one another. Showing love to one another will show to the world that we are indeed the disciples of Christ (John 13:35). Love is so powerful that no one can resist it, therefore let us show love to the world and win all its people for Christ Jesus. Hallelujah! Be love conscious!
Prayer Point: My loving Father, thank You for sacrificing Your only begotten Son for me. I am grateful also for Your pouring this same love into my heart. Please lead and guide me to love my fellow human beings with this sacrificial love for them, to know that true love exists and become members of Your Kingdom in Jesus’ name. Amen!
