Everyone’s Worth Melting For

For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God.

(1 Peter 3:18 NASV)

In Disney’s Frozen, Elsa unintentionally freezes her sister Anna’s heart. When the evil Prince Hans leaves Anna to die slowly in the cold, Olaf, the snowman, comes to her rescue. He quickly builds a fire to keep her warm. When Anna sees that the fire begins to melt her beloved snowman, she tells him, “Olaf! You’re melting!” In his most adorable and sweet voice ever Olaf says to her, “Some people are worth melting for.” Talk about “an act of true love”!

See, when God saw that we were dying in our sin, He sent His Son to die for us. But unlike Olaf, Jesus didn’t think that only some people were worth dying for. He died for all. “For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God” (1 Peter 3:18). I don’t know about you, but to me this is what an act of true love is all about.

As we get ready to celebrate His act of true love this Easter season, let’s remember to not only embrace it, but to extend it to those who need it the most because everyone’s worth melting for.

“Love is putting someone else’s needs before yours.” Olaf, Frozen
