Jesus Christ Loves All People
Adventure 8: Jesus Christ
Does Jesus love people?
Yes! Jesus wept for people, prayed for people, and laid down His life for people. Matthew 9:36 – But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd.
This Truth Makes
Jesus Christ is the perfect example of how a person ought to be. Through His life and words, He reveals Who God is – the absolute standard of perfection. We must follow Him.
1 Peter 2:21 – For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow His steps.
The primary way Christ is our example is in love. Christ selflessly served His Father and others. He gave Himself (Ephesians 5:25) so that we might have life. True love always gives sacrificially!
Discover some other ways in which Christ is the perfect example for us:
• Patience (Hebrews 12:2)
• Humility (John 13:3-5; Philippians 2:5-8)
• Compassion (John 4)
• Triumph over temptation (Matthew 4)
