No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. – John 15:13
Think of how we feel when we are with our friends. Especially our best friend.
We love them and know we are loved by them.
We are relaxed with our friends. We have no fear. We do not have to pretend to be someone we are not. We are happy to spend time with them.
And we forgive them when they hurt us or are not around as much as we would like.
And we would lay down our lives for our friends.
Jesus is our friend. He chose us. He loves us. He forgives us.
And He died for us.
No greater love.
Jesus, help me to remember that I am loved. I am loved by You. Thank you for being my friend. Amen.
