1 John 3:16–We know love by this, that He laid down His life for us; and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
How do we even know what love is? We only know what love is due to the sacrificial love that God has shown us. Without His sacrifice, we would never know what true love is. When we show love to others, is it our own selfish love or God’s pure sacrificial love? Are we sacrificial in our love for others?
Lord, Your love is sacrifice. You gave up You very life so that we would have a chance for life through You. Help me to display Your love for others through sacrifice.
