“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.” 1 John 4:7
Our God is such an awesome God, that when we think about Him our hearts swell with gratitude for all that He has done, is doing and is yet to do. Loving God comes so easy to us, His redeemed children.
But loving people? It is so much easier to love God than to love people. It takes some doing, some praying and some real submission. However, it does not matter how hard it is to do, we are commanded to do it. Beloved, we have to love one another.
We have to be faithful to love those who treat us good and those who treat us unkindly. Those who understand us and those who do not. Let’s commit to be faithful to love so that we can reap love. Love is of God and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. We know Him and that is why we can love Him and others.
Today’s Declaration: With the help of the Holy Spirit, I will love people as God has loved me. I will be a conduit of His love.
