I hope no one ever describes me a someone who “really loves the Lord.”
I hope instead I am described as someone Jesus loves dearly.
John the apostle understood this.
The disciples looked around at one another, wondering who on earth he was talking about. One of the disciples, the one Jesus loved dearly, was reclining against him, his head on his shoulder.
“Peter boasted of His love for Jesus and ended up denying Him three times.
John boasted of Jesus’ love for Him and ended up reclining with Him at the table. ” - Chris Katzer
This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
1 John 4:10
