There is no greater love than GOD'S love because while we were sinning against Him and rebelling against His commands, He gave us salvation through the death of Christ.
Our earthly parent would not go as far as giving up their lives for their children. God however, didn't withhold His only Son, He gave Him as a ransom to save you and I.
In today's society, there are many fathers who don't even put food on the table.
Children are dying from hunger today because many parent are not supporting their family. Men are suppose to be the main breadwinner of the family but we are lacking responsibility.
God is our heavenly Father and there is no greater love than His love toward us. When our earthly mother and our father forsake us, God will take care of us. This is more proof that the love God have for us is far greater than any other love we think we have.
The LORD summed up the commandments with: "love GOD" & "love others"
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
This is the first and great commandment.
And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
Therefore, we are to be our brother's keeper and just as GOD showed us love through the sacrifice of Christ, we need to love each other.
If we don't love our brothers and sisters, we cannot love God because we see our brothers and sisters every day and we have never seen God.
We sometimes pretend like we are very loving and kind but when the LORD searches our hearts, there seem to be a lot of hatred, malice and envy there.
By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
We are suppose to show selfless, unconditional love to others just like Christ did toward us. It is the intension of the LORD that love be the defining characteristic of Christians.
Jesus sets an example of genuine love for us to follow, we should not be reluctant to follow it.
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
We may never be able to love like Jesus by giving up our lives for another. However, we are suppose to have genuine love, and such love involve some level of sacrifice.
The Bible speaks of love in terms of sacrificial actions. This is not easy to do but we are able to do all things through Christ who give us strength. When we seek God's help, He give us the strength and character to be more like Him.
God bless you.
