There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command. 15 I no longer call you slaves, because a master doesn’t confide in his slaves. Now you are my friends, since I have told you everything the Father told me. 16 You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name. 17 This is my command: Love each other.
7 Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. 8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
It's Good Friday. It's a big day for me. For some it may only be an extra day off work. But for everyone it's a day where the greatest act of love took place. This act was for you, for me, for believers, for unbelievers, for everyone.
Christ died for us so we could know and experience full love and life with God.
You are dearly loved and were worth dying for.
