John 10:15:

GW So I give my life for my sheep.
AMP Even as [truly as] the Father knows Me and I also know the Father--and I am giving My [very own] life {and} laying it down on behalf of the sheep.

John 10:18:

AKJV "No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.
BBE No one takes it away from me; I give it up of myself. I have power to give it up, and I have power to take it again. These orders I have from my Father.
GW No one takes my life from me. I give my life of my own free will. I have the authority to give my life, and I have the authority to take my life back again. This is what my Father ordered me to do."
AMP No one takes it away from Me. On the contrary, I lay it down voluntarily. [I put it from Myself.] I am authorized {and} have power to lay it down (to resign it) and I am authorized {and} have power to take it back again. These are the instructions (orders) which I have received [as My charge] from My Father.

John 15:13:

AKJV "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."
BBE Greater love has no man than this, that a man gives up his life for his friends.
GW The greatest love you can show is to give your life for your friends.

I John 3:16:

AKJV Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
BBE In this we see what love is, because he gave his life for us; and it is right for us to give our lives for the brothers.
GW We understand what love is when we realize that Christ gave his life for us. That means we must give our lives for other believers.
AMP By this we come to know (progressively to recognize, to perceive, to understand) the [essential] love: that He laid down His [own] life for us; and we ought to lay [our] lives down for [those who are our] brothers [in Him].

Looking at these verses we see that Jesus wants us to lay down or let go of anger, rage, concerns and sin. If we look at His example - He laid down His life for us His friends. Now let us follow in His example and lay down our lives for our brothers in Christ.
