Continue in Love

When I was young, my aunt told me how my cousin Aaron died. Aaron was in the Navy doing a drill that he had done many times before. Something went wrong and his helicopter went down into the water.
My cousin was able to get two men out of the submerged helicopter. Then he realized that the pilot was stuck and could not get out. Aaron saved the pilot, but in the process, he was not able to save himself.
In our Bible verses today, Jesus said, “I have loved you as the Father has loved me. Now continue in my love” (verse 9). I believe that my cousin loved like Jesus did. He was willing to give up his life to save others.
When we follow Jesus’ commands, we have His love and joy in our lives. I pray that you will have the courage to show His love to others today.
