Coffee Talk: That’s Love


Coffee Talk {living outside the stacks}

I’d like to welcome you to Coffee Talk. If you’re new here, this is where I share some of the great and not~so~great stuff that I find on the web. Topics range from news stories that leave me scratchin’ my head to DIYs that I think are absolutely clever. And, who knows, there may even be a recipe thrown in here or there just for fun.

Today I’d like to talk about the ultimate act of love:

The life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

No Greater Love {Living Outside the Stacks}

The hubs likes to say “love is not a feeling, it’s an action”; it demands the individual to do something that requires sacrifice on his or her part. Jesus set the example for love when he gave his life for us way back on calvary. John 15:13 says:

Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friend.

Even in our sinful state, Jesus loved us enough to call us “friend” and take the punishment for our sins.

And this was not just any death, this was a most brutal death. He was whipped, spit upon, beat up, battered, bloodied and then nailed to a cross. His death was as gruesome, ugly, and nasty as the sins we commit. But, here’s the good part, out of something so awful, came something so beautiful: the gift of eternal life. To receive it, all you have to do is confess with your mouth and believe with your heart that Jesus is Lord, then you are saved {Romans 10:9~10}.

In Him,
