Deus caritas est! “…God is love.” 1 John 4:16
As we enter this season of reflection and renewal, let’s rediscover God calling to His children, revealing His goodness, and transforming each one with Perfect Love. "This is real love – not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins" (1 John 4:10) ~ Donna Oswalt
We are saved so that we might know Him in intimate daily fellowship. Steve McVey/Grace Walk
Growing intimacy defines a deeper relationship. God calls us into community with Him, longs to have intimate daily fellowship with His children. Do we really desire this?
And this is his commandment: We must believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as he commanded us. Those who obey God’s commandments remain in fellowship with him, and he with them. And we know he lives in us because the Spirit he gave us lives in us. 1 John 3:23-24 NLT
Love defines this mutuality, His love for us and our love for others. In our obedience to God's love, we find ourselves both loved and loving. We are never alone when we live in fellowship with Him.
- What is the character of Jesus?
- What is required for living in fellowship with him?
- What evidence of God's presence is given the believer?
Spirit of Life - You draw near to me, call me to live deeply in Christ. Let love shine through me however You desire. Amen. -dho
