LOVE OF CHRIST


THE LOVE OF CHRIST

Manifested by:

a/ His coming to seek the lost.— Luke 19:10 For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.

b/ His praying for the enemy.— Luke 23:32 And there were also two other, malefactors, led with him to be put to death.

33 And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left.

34 Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.

c/ His giving himself for us.— Galatians 2:18 For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor.

19 For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God.

20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

Notes:




a/ His love passes knowledge.— Ephesians 3:19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

b/ As His followers we are to imitate His love.— John 13:34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one anoth

John 15:12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.

Ephesians 5:And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savour.

1 John 3:16 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
