A Collect of Thanks for Jesus’ Great Love

Lord Jesus Christ, holy one of God, you laid down your life for us, for those you would call not merely creations or servants, but friends. May we show such great love to those around us, sacrificing in your name and in the name of love for those you have called into your kingdom, through you who lives forever with the Father and Holy Spirit in perfect joy. Amen. ‘No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.’ – John 15:13
