Selfless Love

According to scripture in Heb 10:10, you "have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all." The word sanctified is translated from the Greek word 'hagiazo' which means separated unto God. In other words through the sacrifice of Jesus and your identification with this sacrifice you have been set apart from others to live a life aligned with God's instructions and directions.

One of the things you have been set apart for is to love like God loves. Jesus left you and I with two great commandments; to love God and to love your neighbor - Matt 22:36-40. Both commandments have one word in common - love. The word love used here refers to the God-kind of love which is a selfless love. In other words you are called to a life dedicated to selfless love.
