To love someone is a decision. We decide to love the good and the bad, the attributes and the weaknesses, for better or for worse. Christ had the choice to Love. He CHOSE to lay on the Cross for us. He gave us the ultimate example: He put His own life down for us on a Cross. That is how we are to love one another, in self-sacrifice. It is a decision we make in full awareness of what it entails. We freely decide to love like God decided to love us. In the freedom of the children of God.
