Message of the Day: Self-Sacrifice is the Main Characteristic of Love

By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.” (1 John 3:16, NKJV)

Since we do what is right and refuse what is wrong, our lives will be characterized by love. But the world will not respond kindly to our goodness, just as Cain did not respond kindly to Abel’s. 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 the Christian.

Those who have genuine love, instead of taking the lives of others, would rather sacrifice their own. Self-sacrifice, even in the everyday things of life, is the chief characteristic of love. Love is proved by actions, not words, as Jesus Christ showed, and Christians must follow his example.
