That must be our love for others, even if they don’t care! That is part of what makes it so hard! Jesus freely offered up His life to redeem all mankind, not just those who were His followers. He tells the disciples in John that this is a command. If I look at this from a “human” point of view, I cannot do it. But if you have Jesus’ love in your heart for others, nothing can destroy that. As Christians we ask for the Holy Spirit who helps us to love as Jesus did. We don’t always succeed, but we keep trying because we are thankful for Jesus’ love for us first. And the Bible says that this is how others will know that we truly belong to Jesus. Just like Jesus’ love, it is a SACRIFICE.
