“Love is love.” What? Is anything that I decide is love actually love? Let’s take a look at what Christ did for us out of love.
John 3:16 tells us that “God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son.” Out of love God gave His Son. He gave what most any parent would never give. He gave what was a part of Him and what was most important, Jesus. And Jesus, who is God the Son, left a place where He was glorified and worshipped and honored. He left a place of perfection to come down to earth. We are told in Philippians 2:7-8 that “He made Himself nothing by taking on the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to death — even death on a cross!”
