What love looks like

The subject of this morning's sermon was "Love". The following picture contrasts the way in which our culture sees love, and how Jesus Christ views it. In many contemporary "love" songs, the love in question is the selfish pursuit of a set of pleasing emotions. However in Jesus' estimation, "greater love has no man than this, than he lays down his life for his friends...". In his life, his teaching and crucially his death, he shows us what real giving love is; while the transformative effect of his gospel on us makes us more loving so we can imitate him.
