Look Above, No Greater Love

"Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friend"

In John 15:13 Jesus declares to his disciples that they love one another, just as He loved them. The disciples had some understanding to these words, but then Jesus makes the divine statement of Greater Love. What could the disciples have thought of this statement? A commandment directed to people Jesus called friends. What would be the demonstration of this greater love? Then came the divine answer of how God sees great love, living its powerful expression in the life of a friend, neighbor or yes, even your enemy. Greater love could only be known when one lays his life down for a cause greater than oneself. This Jesus did on the cross, then and only then did the disciples fully understand the divine cry of Greater Love.
