I’ve joined my blogging friends for a new facet of my blog, called His Encouragement, inspiring scriptures shared each Thursday. My hope and my prayer is that these scriptures each week will bless your heart and encourage your soul.
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13 KJV
In honor of Valentine’s Day, I knew I wanted to share a scripture about love. This verse is one of my favorites. It’s also the them verse and inspiration for the title of my upcoming release, No Greater Love.
There’s no greater love that one person can show for another than giving their own life in their place. I’m so thankful for the first responders and military who willingly lay their life on the line each and every day.
But there is One who gave his life for us. His life is the ultimate expression of love ever given. Jesus Christ the righteous died for lowly, sinful humankind. And amazingly enough, he even called us, friends. He died for his enemies. He died for those who would reject him. He died for those who would ignore him. He died for those who didn’t deserve his love– which is all of us! He died for me.
Thank you, Jesus!
