The Love of God 3

John 15:13, “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”

God’s love is exceeding.  He says, “hath no man”.   There is a saying circulating social media that says, “Only two men have died for you.  Jesus Christ and the American soldier.”  Being patriotic I like this saying.

As I was thinking about God’s great love and how His love is exceeding, I thought about David and Jonathan.  Look at what David said as he lamented in II Samuel 1:26, “I am distressed for thee, my brother Jonathan: very pleasant hast thou been unto me: thy love to me was wonderful, passing the love of women.”

The love we have here on earth can be deep love; but, there is no love that is like the love of God.  God’s love far exceeds the love of any man, woman, boy or girl.  God’s love is exceeding love.

So, how are you doing?
