To What End Does God Love You?

Screenshot 2023-04-06 at 1.58.06 PM I’ve been studying recently John 13-17 which is called 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 early 17th century. 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.”
