No Greater Love

Two days last week, we went into Rome and ended one of our days at a church, Santa Maria del Popolo, in the Piazza del Popolo. This beautiful painting inside the church reminded me of the gracious price Christ paid for us on the Cross.

Today, as the world celebrates the meaning of love - let us remember the ultimate example of Love. A Love that is good, perfect, and unconditional. Paul says in the book of Ephesians, "Mostly what God does is love you. Keep company with Him and learn a life of love. Observe how Christ loved us. His love was not cautious, but extravagant. He didn't love in order to get something from us but, give everything of Himself to us. Love like that" (5:2).

"There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends." John 15:13

  1. And I pray that you, Sara Beth, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.
