John was eager to point Jesus to us
He wants us to know Jesus personally
His voice of affection invites us to Jesus
To everyone, he says, “Behold the Lamb of God!”.
Jesus is loved not for His teachings or works
He was loved for what He was in Himself
His name provokes in countless reverence
He is loved with a passion beyond human emotion.
Jesus asked nothing of the world except love
He made Himself loved. His whole life is love
He sought for the good of those around Him
He spoke with sincerity to His listeners.
Ever since the days of our infancy
The world is grateful to God
He is a God of justice and perfection
Justice governs His thoughts.
