Laying Down Our Lives

Our policy as Christians is to lay down our lives for one another. Are we willing to do this? God has revealed this type of love in Jesus and invites us to participate in this love that originates within Himself. (1 John 3:16-20)

We know love by this, that he laid down his life for us—and we ought to lay down our lives for one another. How does God’s love abide in anyone who has the world’s goods and sees a brother or sister in need and yet refuses help? 

Little children, let us love, not in word or speech, but in truth and action. And by this we will know that we are from the truth and will reassure our hearts before him whenever our hearts condemn us; for God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything.
