What is Love?

“This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. — 1 John 3:16

Putting your life on the line for someone else… wow!  Now that’s love. But most of us won’t ever be put in that situation.

But have you ever needed people to just stand up for you? Have you ever needed people to just step in and give you a hand? Have you ever been hurting and just needed someone you could trust to talk with?

And no one showed up.

This is love: you are there for those who need you — not just when it is convenient or easy. But you are there because they need you.
