Jesus Loves People Very Much
Construction Zone 8: Jesus Christ
Does Jesus love people?
Yes! Jesus laid down His life for people. Matthew 9:36a – But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them.
This Truth Makes
In His time on Earth, Jesus went around teaching, preaching, and healing. One reason Jesus healed people by miracles was to prove that He was the Son of God. But Jesus also looked at the people and felt kindness and pity for them because they had such great needs. The preaching and healing ministry of Jesus attracted very large crowds! Would you have gone to see Jesus if you had lived back then?
Jesus Christ is the perfect example of how a person ought to live. Through His life and words, He reveals Who God is – the absolute standard of perfection. We must follow Him.
The main way Christ is our example is in this kind of love. Christ selflessly served His Father and others. He gave Himself (see Ephesians 5:25) so that we might have life. True love always gives!
John 15:9 – “As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love.”
