This verse tells me that I ought to lay down my life for the brethren because Christ laid down His life for me. So, what does that mean for you? Should you be a doormat for everyone, or should you, starting with your brothers and sisters in Christ, put their needs above yours. A big part of what we have been talking is about, is making better eternal choices rather than satisfying your own desires immediately. This is a matter of training and yes, I should mention that you need to turn your life over to God now, and again every single day for the rest of your natural life.
1 John 3:16 ASV
Hereby know we love, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
Matthew 28:20 (KJV)
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
He loves me even when I fall beneath His will
He loves me, oh, oh, oh, He loves me
When my broken heart just won’t keeps still
He loves me oh, oh, oh, He loves me
Even though He knew sometimes I’d fall
Yet and still my name He called, He loves me
Jesus, I’m so grateful for Your love
He loves me even though I was born in sin
He loves me, oh, oh, oh, He loves me, yeah
Took me like I was and now I’m free again, yeah
He loves me, yeah, oh, oh, oh, He loves me
