The very name I use to address you—Beloved—proclaims how dearly I love you. I showed you the full extent of My Love by enduring humiliation, torture, and death for you. No greater love than this is possible, or even conceivable.
You have tucked into your memory many experiences of My unparalleled Love. I want you to dwell on these memories: Enjoy them over and over again! This practice will help convince your doubting heart that My extraordinary Love is really yours—every nanosecond of this life and throughout eternity.
When you abide in Me, you also abide in My Love, for I am Love. As you live close to Me—communing with Me more and more—My living Presence permeates your entire being. This empowers you to trust in My unfailing Love, secure in the salvation I won for you.
It was just before the Passover Feast. Jesus knew that the time had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he now showed them the full extent of his love.
“Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.”
We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.
[1 John 4:16]
But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation.
