No Greater Love
The term no greater love is derived from a well-known verse of the New Testament (John 15): "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends" (John 15:13), often invoked in the context of self-sacrifice. This specific excerpt may refer to:

They tortured the prisoners to what they thought was the limit of human endurance, but utimately failed. The prisoners endured it and , some, came through it, at a heavy price, for truth, and for their brotherly love towards each other.
The Christian faith teaches, as it always has and will continue to do, that God designed marriage as an essential part of his pattern for human life in this world. Marriage is a witness to the eternal love of Christ for his Church; it is therefore the public lifelong covenant union of one man and one woman. Great blessings flow to all people when marriage is widely honoured. Since the Christian attitude to sex is, as in all other things, not self-satisfaction for the sake of self but self-denial for the sake of others, Christians, bearing true witness to their natural sex as God created them, are to pursue chaste singleness outside of marriage and exclusive faithfulness within it. This is the reason for the clear and unambiguous commands of Holy Scripture to this effect, and for the consistent, unchanging submission to this teaching by the Church in all ages.
If the cost to ourselves of faithfulness to our Lord, and love for those around us, is high, we nevertheless commit ourselves to these things. For in this way too, we recognise that we are called to lay down our lives for the good of others; for there is, as our Lord Jesus Christ said, no greater love than this.
"Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends." (John 15:13) In a world where selfish love is the norm, Jesus models a selfless form of love. We cannot journey to the cross and ultimately an empty tomb without being challenged to be models of this form of love.
