Jesus said to his disciples, “This is my commandment: love one another as I love you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one's life for one's friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. I no longer call you slaves, because a slave does not know what his master is doing. I have called you friends, because I have told you everything I have heard from my Father. It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name he may give you. This I command you: love one another” (John 15: 12-17).
Do you love anyone so much that you would do anything for them, even die for them if need be? That is how much Jesus loves you. He held nothing back and He was willing to suffer anything because you are more important than everything else to Him. Do you love Jesus in the same way He loves you?
Jesus, help me to live with a strong will. I don’t want to be a slave to my feelings.
