The best definition of love.
The word “love” is one of the most overworked words in our language. We use it to describe our desire and delight in everything from chocolate ice cream to puppy dogs, from our wish to do something (as in, “I’d love to go to Hawaii”), to our relationship with God (“I love God”) and our families (“I love my children”).
What is the best definition of “love”? Genuine love is giving, sharing, putting others ahead of self, serving others without expectation of reward, giving others pleasure or helping them to enjoy life.
The greatest example of love is when someone sacrifices his or her life to save the life of another. Jesus said, “Greater love has no one than this, that someone lays down his life for his friends” (John 15:13). But in his own life, Jesus went even further: he laid down his life for those who hated him and rejected him. He “came into the world to save sinners” (I Timothy 1:15). While on the cross, he said about those crucifying him, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do” (Luke 23:34). He voluntarily and deliberately sacrificed himself to save others (23:35). God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only son to die for us while we were yet sinners (John 3:16; I Corinthians 15:3). The greatest gift that God could ever give us is Jesus, the pure and righteous one who alone was God in the flesh and who alone could atone for our sins (Romans 8:32). His death and resurrection three days later paid the price for all the sins of the entire world from the first man, Adam, until the end of time (Hebrews 7:6-7; 9:26-28).
No other gift of God could satisfy or pay the price for our sins. This was the only way that God could satisfy his moral and just nature and prove his love for sinners. A perfect angel could not die for us. An angel is a creation of God, not God himself. Jesus is God in the flesh, not someone God made, but God himself, the one and only God who is blessed forevermore (John 1:1-4, 14; Romans 9:5). Jesus is the “radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature” (Hebrews 1:3). The preeminence and glory of Jesus is detailed in these words from the Apostle Paul:
