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)
We are all familiar with John 3:16, but 1 John 3:16 adds another dimension of thought for us.....giving OUR life for others. There are only a select few that I would willingly give my life for. Jesus did not pick and choose. He gave His life for all who believe with no thought of His own suffering. This act of unselfishness is beyond my understanding and comprehension. I can only continue to humble myself and work toward being a better person, knowing that I will never measure up to the example set by Christ.
