I’ve been studying over the past several days for our Spring Sermon series entitled “Final Words” from John 13-17 which is Jesus’ Upper Room Discourse.
John 13:1 says: Now before the Feast of the Passover, Jesus knowing that His hour had come that He would depart out of this world to the Father, having loved His own who were in the world, He loved them to the end.
A devotional thought worth serious reflection and meditation comes from the pen of
John Donne from the late 16th and early 17th centuries. He writes:
“Those whom God loves, he loves to the end and not to their end and their death, but to His end, and His end is that He might love them more.” – John Donne
