Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is a child of God and knows God. – 1 John 4:7 (NLT)
When you think about God, what do you think? Do you think of Him as someone who is loving?
Today’s Bible verse tells us that God is love and that love comes from God. Without God showing us love, we wouldn’t know how to love. God’s love is perfect, and unlike human love, it doesn’t have any conditions or requirements other than us accepting it.
Today’s Key: God is Love
God is love. He shows us His love in so many ways. He shows it to us in creation, as we have food to eat, air to breathe. He shows us His love also through Jesus.
It was in Jesus, that God really demonstrated His love. God gave the best He had to have a relationship with us.
So let the knowledge of God’s love flow into every area of your life. As you begin to think about it, it makes it easier to love others. We realize that even though we didn’t deserve it, God loved us. And that knowledge helps us to love others who don’t deserve it!
