The measure of Christ's love is that He gave Himself for us. There can be no greater expression or illustration of love than this? How does this prove once again that the motive for the Son's coming was not the merits or worth of men, but the Son's love?
For the great love with which He loved us, He freely gave Himself up to the cruelest of deaths to suffer the full extent of God's wrath against sin.
-Galatians 2:20 -Love and Pity Moved Him -Ephesians 5:2 -John 15:13

Great Sermon! This is a wonderful sermon on the love of Christ. Please listen to it. Also, we should seek to keep ourselves in the love of God like Jesus says in John 15 and Jude says, by loving and obeying Christ and building ourselves up in our most holy faith, and praying in the Holy Spirit. I encourage everyone who is reading this to pray through your Bibles. Seek to make it a daily practice to pray through the word of God, and to pray for obedience to the revealed will of God within it for all the saints. What better way to build ourselves up in our most holy faith and pray in the Holy Spirit than to pray through God's word, hearing from Him and being sanctified in truth, in order to keep ourselves in His love? Not that God's love is ever removed from His people, but when we walk in His will by His grace we experience and enjoy that love rather than His anger and unpleasant, but loving discipline. And His steadfast love is better than life. Praise the Lord.
