Message of the Day: Self-Sacrifice – The Chief Characteristic of Love.

“Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.” (1 John 3:18, NIV)

When sinners are shamed by the uprightness of others, the outcome usually is that they hate them for it. Hate produces murder, and murder is obviously not a characteristic of love. (1John 3: 14-15)

Those who have genuine love, instead of taking the lives of others, would rather sacrifice their own. Self-sacrifice, even in regular or everyday life, is the chief characteristic of love.

Love is evidenced by works or deeds not by words, as Jesus exemplified when he sacrificed himself at the cross. By doing so, he showed us an example we must follow!
