Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. John 15:13
Would you lay down your life for a friend, much less a stranger? Well that is what Jesus did for us. He laid down His life for us. In the above verse, Jesus tells us that there is no greater love than the love that causes one to lay his life down for another. These words are actually spoken at the last supper. Jesus is letting the Apostles know that he is going to lay down His life for them. Jesus left us an example to live by, by giving His life for us. We should be willing to die for our brothers and sisters in Christ. For myself, if dying would bring someone to Jesus, go ahead and shoot me. I try to live by the example that Christ gave. That is what all Christians should strive to do, live as Christ lives. We should give like Jesus gives. We should be kind like Jesus is kind. We should love like Jesus loves, even to death.
