Love of Jesus Stands Out in History

The awesome contrast of the LOVE OF JESUS stands out vividly and most significantly in history.  It stands out noticeably in comparison to the harsh government and rulers and culture of that time.  Political rulers and military were cruel and unforgiving while religious rulers were stiff and legalistic, meting out punishment without mercy. Jesus walked among the people, talked with them, touched them and wept over them–all motivated by His love and compassion.  His signs and wonders never benefited Him, only those He lovingly touched.  I suppose that if we look at the life, motivation and actions of Jesus, we would come to the conclusion that the definition of love is “redemptive action.” “For God so loved . . . that He gave . . .” (Jn.3:16)
