John 15:12-14 – This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. You are My friends if you do whatever I command you. (NKJV)
In a world where the word “friend” is thrown around so loosely, it’s great that God has given us a true description/definition of a friend. A friend is one who does what God asks toward others and is willing to lay down his life for those very same people. Now this may not literally mean “give up your life” but it does mean that you are willing to sacrifice yourself for the good of others.
I’m grateful for all of our “Justice Allies” who lay down their lives each and every day so that the lives of others may be enhanced/enriched.
Therefore, it is with a grateful heart that I/we say, “Thank you” to everyone who daily lays their life down for the good of others.
ISAAC is grateful for our justice friends!
