Greater love has no one than this, that a person will lay down his life for his friends.  

                                       - John 15 verse 13

The Lord our God loves us to a degree that we cannot fully imagine. He loves us so dearly that "I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. 

                                  - Romans 8 verse 38 - 39

The great God of heaven undertook to die a grisly death for us to save us from being lost to the kingdom of darkness. Further to that, He embarked on a customized project for each of us whose aim is to turn us into mature sons of the Kingdom of God. This project   involves the renewing of our minds and the putting to death the flesh such that we become subjects of the Spirit of God.

The Lord our God demonstrated His own perfection through Jesus and simultaneously,   paid our ransom to claim us out of darkness and all this was motivated by His love for us.

How then should we relate to the God who completed such a great and costly project on our behalf?q

Should we not brim with gratitude for His sacrifice for us? And in being grateful, should we not seek to know Him and love Him?  And in loving Him, should we not commit ourselves to the purpose He has reserved for us that pertains to the work of His Kingdom?

In other words, should we not wholly give our lives to our King to use for His own strategic and momentary purposes of His kingdom?
