Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.John 15:13
When we think of laying down our lives, we often think about dying in a natural way.
But that´s not the thing God wants us to do. He´s asking us to lay down out lives in a different way.
He´s asked us to show love, not by dying for others, but by living for them.
What does that exactly mean?
It depends. Sometimes it means to spend time with someone, or to pray for a person in need. Other times it means to give ourselves with our love, patience and understanding
When you lay down your ife, you life to please God instead of yourself. You need to let HIM guide you by his LOVE.
If you have the feeling that someone is in need, then don´t hesitate. Go for it and be a blessing for others. Share the love you have and give it to other people.
The Bible says, that when we give, we will receive multiply times more! Commit yourself today to lay down your life and take up the love life.
If you want you can pray:
“Father, in Jesus´ Name, I see that I am called to give myself to others and I accept that calling today. I´ll give my time and your love whenever I can and I will lift up those who are weak. I am willing to be available to be used of You so that those around me might experience the abundant life You have provided for EVERYONE.
You have loved me with the greatest love there is. It´s a privilege to share it with others. I thank you for it. In Jesus´ Name. Amen”
