My hero is amazing.
Here’s a description of this man that I read this morning:
“He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness.”
These words from John 1:14 are, of course, describing the Messiah, the Lamb of God, the Good Shepherd, the King, the Savior, the Lion.
There are countless descriptions of Jesus Christ offered in the Bible, both in Old Testament prophecies and in historical accounts of His life and teachings. But all of them would be sorely lacking value if not for the characteristics described in the verse above.
We all want friends — best friends — who are full of unfailing love and faithfulness.
We want friends who will never leave us or forsake us.
It is deeply comforting that Jesus’ love for me was so great that He was willing to suffer in advance for the sins that I would commit after entering this world 1,923 years after His crucifixion.
Since Jesus was willing to do this for me, my appreciation should be reflected by my willingness to show unfailing love and faithfulness toward others.
I have some friends who are struggling. You do, too.
Let’s put John 1:14 into practice in how we support them.
After all, isn’t that what Christ does for us?
As always, I love you
