Good Life Journal - 1 John 4

Scripture:

1 John 4:7 7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God

Observation:

The understanding and application of love has more weight than anything else when it comes to our connection and relationship with God.

Application:

The love that God has given us in Christ should result in a love for others. Not simply a feeling towards them but tangible actions that meet their needs. Doing this doesn’t cause God to love us, but reveals that we have been born of God and have a relationship with God. A few things…

-Nothing should cause us to scratch our heads more than an unloving “Christian”.

-Every time we love someone else we are simply responding to the love God has given us.

-Love people, its that simple. That is our faith in its purest form.

Prayer:

Love. It really is the most important thing. These three things remain, faith, hope and love. And the greatest of these is love. May I know and live this. Thank you FATHER!
