Christ like love

“This is my commandment, that you love one another, even as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. John 15:12-13 WEB If you say that you are a disciple of Christ and you love not your brother like Christ love us, you are a liar and a thief. As a disciple your priority is to love your brother. Our pathway is to love as Christ love. Are you willing to give your life for your brother? He laid down His life for us. Who can measure this kind of love. Christ gave up His comfort, joys and adoration of the heavens to be sullied by the soil of Earth and to carry the sin ons sinners. His bearing of agonising pain through beatings, nails in His hands, the spear in His side, the thorns on His head all exemplify the measure of His love. We find His love, but we also see His manner of loving and are called to bear with other's sin, with inflicted pain, with stabbing, cruel remarks and treatment. You find this impossible? ???? Yup to the human nature it is impossible, but as a new creation, the temple of Holy Spirit who has poured out the love of God into our hearts, we can ask for and receive the grace and guidance to love as Christ love Stay blessed
