“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13
Text: John 15:9-14
Agape love is one that is unconditional and perfect. It is the love of God for mankind in sending His only begotten Son to take the place of sinners. There was the story of a young man who was convicted and sentenced to death by hanging for the offence of murder. After the sentence was passed, the Judge asked if he had anything to say before he would be taken into custody. Immediately, a man in white apparel appeared before the Judge and said he was taking his place to die for him, the Judge was amazed.
This story represents what Jesus Christ has done for you on the Cross of Calvary. He came to die for your sins, He laid down his life for your transgressions, no man can do what He has done for you. Your father, mother, brother, sister, uncle and aunty cannot die for you no matter how much they love you, only Jesus came to this world to die for your sins, that is why you should not continue to live in sin.
The choice is yours today to accept Him into your life; all you need is to confess your sins and promise not to go back to them anymore and Jesus will receive you.
1 Corinthians 13:1-8
Prayer for today
Lord, I accept Your sacrifice for me, surrender my life unto You.
