Because of Calvary,
John 15:9 (ESV)
As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love.
“Oh, what love for Christ’s disciples to continue in, — a love which finds no parallel except the love of the Father to his well-beloved Son, a love therefore without beginning, without end, without measure, without limit, without change? Oh, to be fully possessed by this love! I will read this verse again; it is such a sweet silver bell that we cannot hear it ring too often: ‘As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.’ That is, live in it, abide in it, make it your home and your continual dwelling-place.” [Charles Haddon Spurgeon, Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit XLV, (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1899), p. 587]
