Who are you prepared to lay down your life for?
This lesson comes to us through Jesus teaching, parables, miracles. But the greatest of this word comes to us through His teaching by example: “No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” Who can doubt this? Who can sneer at this? This is why the Cross is such a powerful symbol. It proclaims graphically the whole message of salvation.
“For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3: 16 NLT).
