“Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.” John 15:13Jesus Christ lived out the powerful words of John 15:13 within hours of stating them. As the Son of God, Jesus could have avoided the suffering, torture, and cruelty of the cross. He was utterly without sin and did not deserve to die. But love, the fuel that drives true sacrifice, drove Him to the cross. As a result, we can be forgiven if we will accept His sacrifice and resurrection by faith. Have you trusted the One who laid down His life for you? Only Jesus, the perfect sacrifice, can declare guilty people perfect.
