This Week’s Theme – Friendship

September 19, 2018

Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.

John 15:13

Thought For Today

Jesus said it is a great love when a man lays down his life for a friend. The most profound friendship requires sacrifice.

There are many stories of those who have given their lives for others, for the good of the cause, and for an outcome they believe in with conviction. You probably will never face the choice of sacrificing your life for a friend, but you will face the decision to be sacrificial in all your relationships.

You may make excuses. You may think your time is too valuable to be engaged with your friends. But has it occurred to you that Jesus life was worth 10,000 times more than yours or mine, but He sacrificed it for us?​
