1 John 3:16

1 John 3:16…”This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers.” Our time is not our own. One of the most subtle barriers to joy for Christians in our post-modern, individualistic culture is being willing to give up our time for others. However, we were created for covenant community, and attempting to live out the Christian life independent of the local church is spiritual suicide. Committing to lay down our lives for the spiritual well-being of others is commanded in scripture. And if we do, it shows we really do have the love of Christ in us.
