I was on Periscope watching Steffan Greatness, who is an awesome pastor and who also enlightens me every time I listen to him. But anywho, he was speaking last night and wound up making a point that was so profound to me that I couldn’t help but share.
The main topic was love. Greatness made a point about how we need to truly learn what love is – love is when you get to the point with someone where you can love them even when they are unlovable. The guest he had on the scope furthered his point by saying something along the lines of this:
Love is a risk and a sacrifice. Jesus loved us so much that he was willing to die for us – He was willing to SACRIFICE His life, knowing that some of us wouldn’t believe in Him – that’s a huge risk.
But He still did it. He didn’t want to do it, but the love He had for us outweighed that(Luke 22:42, Matthew 26:39, Mark 14:36).
