Empathy as God’s Love

 John 3:16- For God so loved the world that he gave his only son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life. 

Check out this video:

Now I know the title of this video is Empathy. But for me, it sort of paints a picture of what love is like. Love comes down into the cave with you- just to sit with you in hard times. Love shares in your pain. And I think that’s the kind of love that Jesus talks about when he says, “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son.” God gave the only Son Jesus to enter into our world- our world of pain and suffering to be with us. That is the love that Jesus embodies. And as Christians that is the kind of love that we too are called to embody when we asked to love God and love our neighbors.
