Daily Devotion: Great Love

Bible Reading: John 15:1-17

Key Verse: Verse 13 - “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."

Key Words: Greater love hath no man than this

The love of Christ is the greatest of all love. It’s a sacrificial love. It’s a non-reciprocal love. It’s an everlasting love. It’s a love that saves. It’s the love of Christ.

William Gladstone, in announcing the death of Princess Alice to the House of Commons, told a touching story. The little daughter of the Princess was seriously ill with diphtheria. The doctors told the princess not to kiss her little daughter and endanger her life by breathing the child’s breath. Once when the child was struggling to breathe, the mother, forgetting herself entirely, took the little one into her arms to keep her from choking to death. Rasping and struggling for her life, the child said, “Momma, kiss me!” Without thinking of herself the mother tenderly kissed her daughter. She got diphtheria and some days thereafter she went to be forever with the Lord. Real love forgets self. Real love knows no danger. Real love doesn’t count the cost.

Sounds like the love Christ had for us when He went to Calvary. It sounds like a great love.

What to do:
✞ Remember you are loved by God!
