Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love. By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 1 John 4:7-10
The very nature of God is love. How wonderful and profound. He is the source of our love having both instilled it within us and inspired us to it (by Jesus sacrificial life and death). Further, his reminder is that our response to love God is just that… a response to His love. Love may be one of those precious commodities that never runs out. It seems the more I give away, the more God replenishes it in my life.
How have I responded to the love of God so far in my life? Who can I love in Jesus name today?
Lord Jesus, thank you for Your great love.
