I love this scripture. Christ is getting ready for His great Atonement and He takes time to teach us about the Love of God. To be loved of God as Christ was - can I even comprehend that?
. . . that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. John 17:23
. . . that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them. John 17:26
