People's Bible Notes for John 15:13

Joh 15:13,14 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. The highest human exhibition of love that earth has ever seen was this. Christ was about to exhibit this highest type of human love by dying for his friends. He did even more, as Paul shows us in Ro 5:6, he died for his enemies, something that man had never done.

What of a man s love of God Would not a man s love of God be greater than everything else Why would God suggest laying down one s life for friends is the greatest love

God is good all the time for he is the only friends you need when all others fall short .for he we place them there when he thinks you need them ...when he sends them on your bad days .that is him sending you a blessing in his eye letting you know who is in control. ..him every day all the time.

Orlando's comment on 2013-12-24 11:28:19:

It was the AGAPE kind of LOVE that Jesus showed us. The highest form of LOVE that save us from the penalty of sin.

 

Ishmael Dzitiro's comment on 2013-10-11 14:31:08:

Jesus died for us all.

 

MicHael's comment on 2013-10-11 08:05:05:

We all feel loved when we receive gifts from those we love; could be our Mom, Dad, Boy/Girlfriend, Spouses, Aunties/Uncles etc but you see my friend the Greatest Love is expressed by giving what you value ....
we all know John3:16.

 

BSP's comment on 2013-10-11 07:55:02:

This is the greatest expression of love that Jesus showed. To die for your friends is one thing, but to die for those who are your enemies or who are not your friends is just awe-inspiring. Jesus willingly sacrificing his life was one of the most moving and loving expressions the world has known.

 

Isaiah's comment on 2013-09-11 22:31:15:

deep but also our bonde with God, how he uses us to reach out to one an other. in time of hard ship...Ephesians 6:5-6-7-8..for a battle is nearly here my Visions are getting clear. to all who see them to we must unite! prayer to one an other how we bring blessings to our self. may I see you all who fear the lord our mighty god. for he is the alpha and the omega amen!

 

Dr. Aderinboye's comment on 2013-03-30 17:38:28:

this kind of love has never been once exemplified by any man. Only Jesus is love indeed. He who gave up his life has given up all. What else would he not give? Nothing can be more dare!

 

Blessing's comment on 2013-02-16 06:29:56:

I love this chapter.

 

Edwin Flomo's comment on 2012-12-17 03:15:16:

This kind of love with the Spiritual implication was demonstrated literary. It is incomprehensible.It requires a continual sober reflection if we the Christians must live out our faith genuinely.

 

Kethabile's comment on 2012-07-16 12:20:12:

It is inexplicable, non sensical act. The love that leaves one absolutely in owe. Never understanding and going beyond any natural senses. The one love that cannot be exceeded by any other for there is no other.
