Jesus expressed to his disciples, saying: “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends” (John 15:13).
Jesus, the only begotten Son of God not only laid down his life for his disciples but, for the whole world (John 3:16-18).
Unfortunately, to this day untold numbers of people refuse, reject or simply ridicule Jesus. God forbid. However he warns, says: “He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it” (Matthew 10:37-39).
“Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the [DAY OF JUDGMENT]: because as he is, so are we in this world” (1 John 4:17).
“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad” (2 Corinthians 5:10).
