The affection of Christ Jesus

“God can testify how I long for all of you with the affection of Christ Jesus.”

Philippians 1:8

NIV Study Bible notes:

1:8 affection of Christ Jesus. The deep yearning and intense, compassionate love exhibited by Jesus himself and now fostered in Paul by his union with Christ. This affection reaches out to all, impartially and without exception.
