"Self-preservation is the highest law of nature;
self-sacrifice is the highest rule of grace ..."
"Greater love hath no man than this,
that a man lay down his life for his friends."
"And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us,
(and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,)
full of grace and truth."
I am grateful that Jesus sacrificed himself for us.
I ask you God that I will become like Christ
and that I always will sacrifice myself for others.
