Thought of the Day March 4, 2024 Jesus' great love for us

By 10:37 AM

 As we continue to reflect on the death of Jesus, we recognize and respond to his great love. As he said: "Greater love has no one than to lay down his life for his friend." It is not only through his death on our behalf that he shows us his love, but the manner of death by crucifixion, shows the depth of his love for us. Paul makes it even clearer. Jesus died for us when we were alienated from him. He gave his physical life that we might have eternal life. Do we have the same type of love for others? Striving to imitate Jesus' love is difficult. None of us will be crucified for another person. But we can choose to forget about  ourselves and truly be loving to others, especially those who have hurt us or estranged from us. Our love does not depend on them, but on our choice, in response to God's love for us.
