“Jesus’s death wasn’t just an act of love, it defines love.” -John Piper
In this world where the truth has become distorted, love has become corrupted. Its definition has become lowly, understated and used-up.
We tend to coordinate love with the new trends, with material things, with media and even with people. We choose what to love and who to love. We create our own answers to the questions how to love and why love. We, on our own timeline, decide when to love and where.
Love on this world has become selfish. We mind our own benefit, our own pleasures and our own feelings. We have forgotten that all of these are conditional.
However, isn’t it lovely to know that Jesus traded heaven to have us again? To express His love for us directly?
His gift of freedom opened our hearts to life. His death became an ultimate example of what agape means. That through his death, we would follow His walk and do the same kind of life-laying-down love towards His people.
This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.
-1 John 3:16
He himself is Love. His life and death both demonstrated love, freedom and forgiveness.
He is the very reason why we love. And He will always be the genuine model of who to love, when to love, where to love, how to love and why love.
Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.
