He Loves His Own.

Key Verse

“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.” John 13:1

Text — John 13:1-5


Jesus’ special love is directed towards His own friends. There is love for the whole world that seek to bring humankind to repentance and salvation. “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.” (John 3:16)

Another level of love begins at the very moment we surrender our lives to serve Jesus. We become His own; left in the world to show His glory and to do His service. Our Bible passage describes that love as “the love for His own”. It is the love that preserves us, promotes us, protects us, provides for us and prepares us to live with Jesus in Heaven.

It is that love that delivers us from all the wiles of Satan and comforts us when we suffer for Jesus’ sake. This love is unfailing and will keep us to the end. You are His own if you have turned away from your sins and live righteously every day. You are His own if you do whatever He commands you. It is a privilege to belong to the Saviour. His love towards you, His beloved, will never fail.
