"...and that you love them as much as you love me." (NLT)
"...and have loved them even as you have loved me." (NIV)
"...and loved them, even as You have loved Me" (NASB)
"...and loved them In the same way you’ve loved me." MSG
This verse astounds me. I stumbled upon it while my time in Germany was winding down. I was a little disappointed in how things had turned out. Then I hit this verse.
Jesus was praying for us (those believers to come) and in His prayer, He utters these words. Saying that the Father loves us in the same manner as He loves JESUS. He's talking about US. Loving struggling believers and JESUS the perfect ONE in the SAME MANNER. How awesome is that? Hope it blesses you!
