Love for Christ

God loved us and sent us His Son. He gave us His Son, because of His great love with which He loved us. Greater love has no one than this: Jesus laid down His life for us. He suffered; He shed His blood for us and died as the sacrifice for our sins. We love Him. Though we do not see Him now, but believe in Him. Let us be afire with love for Him.

Blessed he the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled and will not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. In this you greatly rejoice, even though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been distressed by various trials, that the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested by fire, may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ;

and though you have not seen Him, you love Him, and though you do not see Him now, but believe in Him, you greatly rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, obtaining as the outcome of your faith the salvation of your souls. 1 Pe.1:3-9.

More Love to Thee, O Christ
