1 John 4:11-12(NET) Dear friends, if God so loved us, then we also ought to love one another. No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God resides in us, and his love is perfected in us.
Love is what proves that God dwells in you. What makes the difference is our ability to love as Christians. To love the way God loves is impossible except you have God living in you and empowering you to do so.
Any man walking in the flesh cannot love because anyone walking in the flesh is naturally selfish and self-seeking. The God kind of love is characterized by selflessness. This kind of love can only be manifested by a man who knows God. This is the true kind of love(1 John 4:7).
If you truly know God, you will also know that He is all-powerful and all you will get in life comes from Him. This knowledge also empowers you to love others selflessly because you know that what you get in life comes from God and you don’t need to be selfish because your portion in life is secure in God.
Go into today with a desire to know God more. Determine to live a love filled life inspired by a growing knowledge of God.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for loving me so much. I pray you help me truly love others too, in Jesus name I pray. Amen.
