Jesus’ Love

Jn 13:1 Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end.

Love expressed by Jesus

  1. prayed for Peter
  2. Luke 22:31-32 (KJV)
    [31] And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: [32] But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.

  3. Lazarus Death
  4. John 11:35-36 (KJV)
    [35] Jesus wept. [36] Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him!

  5. Boat in storm Mark 4:35-40)

Of coz, the agape love by dying on the cross for our sins. By his blood, we are washed white as snow. Praise God!

John 3:16-17 (KJV)
[16] For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. [17] For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Such love from Jesus towards us. How then should we respond?

When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.

Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast,
Save in the death of Christ my God!
All the vain things that charm me most,
I sacrifice them to His blood.

See from His head, His hands, His feet,
Sorrow and love flow mingled down!
Did e’er such love and sorrow meet,
Or thorns compose so rich a crown?

His dying crimson, like a robe,
Spreads o’er His body on the tree;
Then I am dead to all the globe,
And all the globe is dead to me.

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small;
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.

Praise God! Praise God who saved my soul!
