“Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13
The world today lives in a narcissistic culture. People are obsessed with loving their selves. This vain belief has crept inside the church and is disguised with the teaching as “self-love.”
But, the Word of God teaches otherwise. While the world is promoting “self-worth” and “self-gratification,” Jesus models a love that is selfless and unconditional. It aims to seek the benefit of others above yourself.
And Jesus has called us to do the same. He said, “Love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return, and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, for he is kind to the ungrateful and the evil.” (Luke 6:35)
May we not forget who we really are – children of the Most High God who is known for their love.
