Hereby perceive we the love of God , because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. 1 John 3:16. This verse covers our lifetime of understanding of the Love of God towards us. This is also the Greatest Learning Curve in all the Bible. This IS your Life, and I'll explain. This verse starts when you were just a rotten sinner equal to the sludge at the bottom of the septic tank, and goes all the Way to the Fullness and Totality of ALL that Christ Paid For at the moment you die. The whole Theme of the Bible is to show us and share with us the most Amazing Love that God has towards each one of us. As you Grow In Christ, you Are, and Will, Grow in that Understanding of His Love For you. You Grow from being a God-hater, to a God-Lover in the Fullest sense of The Word. Christ never sinned, but He Paid for ALL the sins of EVERY man, woman, and child to ever walk the earth. The Lord will give you the Understanding of His Love just as Far, Fast, and as Deep as you want to go in all your Lifetime. Your Heart Cry goes from putting your flesh, self, and old Adamic man nature first, to putting Christ and HIS Heart's Cry first, in your Life. Major learning curve here, and the Lord will spend the rest of your Life teaching you ALL that this Love looks like. His Heart's Cry is that ALL will come to Christ, and your ultimate Heart's Cry will be to tell "All" of Christ's Love for them. This "lay down our lives for the brethren", means to lay down OUR flesh, self, and old man nature, and take on The Nature of Christ, which is to extend His Love to EVERYONE. As you Grow In Christ, you Grow in His Love towards others as you put yourself last and them first. Maybe you will "take a bullet" for a friend, maybe not, that is secondary to your Christ-Like Desire to see them "Saved". Whether you live 2 more days, or 40 more years, your Life WILL be focused on Loving Christ, and THAT is how you will, Be Blessed.
