Anchoring Truths from God's Word

The Cost of Love

We all have friends, family, and loved ones whom we love deeply, but do we love them enough to die for them? God showed us His love by sending His only Son into this world to die for us on the cross. He paid the ultimate price so that we could have life through them. Sometimes to love someone, it will cost us something such as time, money, commitment, and more. If you truly love someone, then these things will not detour you from showing love. Jesus wants us to show His love to others. The love that He bestows upon you needs to be shared with others. in 1 John 4:7, it says, "Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God." We ought to love everyone with the love of Christ so that they will see Him through us.
