“This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.” (I John 4:9 NIV)
Christians who do not show sacrificial love towards others do not seem to remember what the cross was all about. They seem to take it for granted that the God who created the universe would send His Son to die for us sinners!
Those of us who call ourselves Christian should understand the importance of sacrificial love. We should remember not to complain or gripe when it becomes necessary for us to show our love to others through our suffering. It is a blessing, not a curse, for us to suffer for others.
