Jesus chose you. And it started with:
As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love.John 15:9
Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.John 15:13,14
Jesus paid the ultimate price for us by laying down His life for us. Let that sink in for a moment as you consider His next words: You are my friends if you do whatever I command you. Friends. Jesus pays for our sins, and then as only He can do, He turns around and calls us His friend. A friend who is more powerful than anything or anyone we will face. A forever friend who will never leave us because He chose us. He asks one thing, that we obey Him. It all began with love. His love for you as He chose you to be His.
God bless! ❤
