As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. John 15:9
Each and every one of our lives is guided by a set of principles or beliefs we have inculcated throughout our lives. Most of these are passed onto us by people we either admire or respect and often, their behaviour shapes ours either consciously or subconsciously. That is a general life principle that carries massive implications to where you are headed – the people you look up to or spend time with will shape your views on key life issues.
Jesus had his life influenced by the Father and the way that He loved the first disciples (and by default US!!) is the same way that the Father loved Him. How does that affect you and me?
- The knowledge of how much we are love should bring great comfort and joy to us
- We too should look to learn how to love from Jesus. What better example and influence do we have?
I challenge you to follow the link below and read as many of the ‘love’ links below to learn how Jesus loves and loved us and how the Father loves Jesus.
