6: Christ suffered and died to show His own love for us

This is part 6 of 50 in a series based on the book ‘Fifty Reasons Why Jesus Came to Die’. Read the introductory post or view all the posts in the series.

Ref: Ephesians 5:2, 25; Galatians 2:20

The death of Christ is not only the demonstration of God’s love (John 3:16), it is also the supreme expression of Christ’s own love for all who receive it as their treasure.

[Christ] paid the highest price possible to give me the greatest gift possible. And what is that? It is the gift he prayed for at the end of his life: “Father, I desire that they also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory” (John 17:24).

Seeing God’s glory. Now there’s something I don’t anticipate enough. Gotta work on it!
