Wednesday April 08

Reading: John 13:1-17

Verse 1: It was just before the Passover Feast. Jesus knew that the hour had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end.

The last words of this verse speak to us about the deep love Jesus had for those closest to Him. He knew that He was about to be betrayed; He understood the fate that awaited Him and yet, despite it all, His capacity to love others never left Him. Once again, we come across the very human side of Christ – a man who dearly loved His family and friends.

This should give us all a great hope, for we are also dearly loved by Christ. Think about it, He proved His love for us because He was willing to sacrifice Himself for the mistakes we were yet to make! We hadn’t even been born, but Jesus who loved us before Time began, was willing to lay down His life for us!

In the midst of all that is holy and sacred this week, there is nothing holier than the love Christ has for us. What a wonderful Savior! What an amazing love! 

Q: What does Christ’s love mean for me?

Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank You for Your amazing and everlasting love. Amen.
