Knowing God’s love is so critical in order to love anyone else.
He set the standard for sacrificial love — by dying for all of us.
The Bible describes the cost of Christ’s love in Romans: “For one will scarcely die for a righteous person — though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die — but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life” (Romans 5:7-10).
