" Greater love has no man than this than to lay down one's life for his friends." John 15:13. To me, my Uncle Ray exemplifies this. It is closer to the love that a father has for their children, or children for their father......We are called to not settle for anything less than this kind of love. This kind of love will change the whole world if Christians will submit to God's command to love like Him.
