God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them. – (1 John 4:16b, NLT)
God is love, and those who remain in love remain in God and God remains in them. – (1 John 4:16b, CEB)
God is love. Anyone who lives faithfully in love also lives faithfully in God, and God lives in them. – (1 John 4:16b, VOICE)
God is the Author and Creator of love, as He is Himself, love. In order for any of us to truly lead a life that exhibits love as we were created to give and receive, we must first know and embrace God’s love for ourselves. When we believe, receive and walk in the light of God’s love, we are able to give out of the abundance of what we have come to know. May we seek, find and faithfully remain in His love, so that we are able to go forth and live the lives of love we have been designed to display.
For God is our Source,
Where true love comes from;
As we live in Him,
Our hearts are restrung.
He fills us with peace,
Overwhelms with grace;
So we may go forth,
In love all our days.
Let us choose remain,
In the love of God;
So His love in us,
Is what we pass on.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You are love and that all who truly live in love are living in You and You in us. Forgive us for the times that we have not exhibited Your faithful love to those around us. Teach us how to trust You more, so that we would give the very same goodness and grace that we are given by You, to all those around us. Show us how to love all whom we are called to love according to Your perfect plan. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we live faithfully in You so that we may live out our days in light of Your perfect love. Amen.
Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence so that we may receive mercy. – Hebrews 4:16
