“As the Father has loved me, I have also loved you. Remain in My love.”
John 15:9 HCSB ©
The Father completely loved the Son with a constant, unchanging, unmeasurable, and abiding love. In this same way, Jesus completely loves His disciples. His love was so great that He was willing to die on Calvary’s cross to provide the only way for people to have a relationship with the Father. Jesus commanded the disciples to continue to live, to abide in His love. Their lives were to be lived in Christ’s love.
Lord Jesus, I stand amazed at Your great love. Help me to learn what it means to live each moment in Your love.
