The greatest love people can show is to die for their friends. John 15:13 ERV http://bible.com/406/jhn.15.13.ERV He died to make the church holy. . . Christ died so that he could give the church to himself like a bride in all her beauty. He died so that the church could be holy and without fault, with no evil or sin or any other thing wrong in it. Ephesians 5:26-27 ERV God is the one who gives me strength. He clears the path I need to take. Psalms 18:32 ERV
I have to be willing to ‘die’ to my hopes & dreams (give them up) if that's what’s needed by my friends/family/spouse! That is love at Your level! Sometimes ‘another’ will need me to focus on them & their need setting aside mine! U were willing to go that far to reach the church - me - & provide what was needed by the church - me!
That is sacrificial loving! I need to come to U to see others & their needs as U do! Then I can choose to offer myself to U/them to meet that need!
U are the one Who can give me the strength to love as U do . . . at this level! Then U will bring them back to me as friends at that level! And You'll clear the path/past so life & love can reach a truly godly level!
