1 John 3:16-18

Christian love involves sacrifice and service. Christ did not simply talk about his love; he died to prove it. Jesus was not killed as a martyr; he willingly laid down his life. “Self-preservation” is the first law of the physical (worldly) life, but “self-sacrifice” is the first law of the spiritual life.
