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
Trust God for the unexpected, and let Him surprise you by doing the unexplainable. Unknown
No matter the length of study time or depth of study, our human minds cannot grasp the greatness of God. Scripture tells us He is greater than anything in this world. The prophet Jeremiah records God's message to him: Call to Me and I will answer you. I'll tell you marvelous and wonderful things that you could never figure out on your own. (Jeremiah 33:3 The Message). Even though we seek Him, in all ways, we can never fully understand God.
...Jesus is God's Son...we've embraced it heart and soul, this love that comes from God. 1John 4:15-16 The Message
Reading these verses reminds us of just how loved we are. John's words to believers gives us a way to evaluate our behavior, to help us identify how closely we walk with God. We are to believe, to confess, to live steadily and deeply in Him, and to tell others that Jesus has redeemed us, giving us eternal life. We should embrace Jesus - heart and soul.
READ 1 John 4:13-16
- What is the proof God gives believers of His Presence?
- When life is uncertain, what is the believer's certainty?
- Do I fully embrace God's generous Love?
Jesus - You lived God's love when You allowed the world to hammer the nails! You live God's love now as our Eternal Intercessor. You will live God's love when You return for His children. I want to wholeheartedly embrace this Divine Love and share You with others. Amen. -dho
