Jesus Christ’s love is shown in His leaving His home in heaven, to come to earth as a man where He would be mocked, betrayed, beaten, and crucified on a cross to pay the penalty for our sin, rising again from the dead on the third day.
First, His love is shown by God the Father sending his only begotten son into the world because he loved us. And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth (Jn. 1:14).Secondly, the Lord Jesus did experience temptation, yet he did not sin: For we have not a high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin (Heb. 4:15).Thirdly, the Lord endured betrayal by a close follower. Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot….and he went his way, and communed with the chief priests and captains, how he might betray him unto them (Lu. 22:3-4).Fourthly, Christ's love was shown through the pain he suffered until his death upon the cross. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us (Ro. 5:8).
