1Jo 4:15-21 "Whoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwells in him and he in God. And we have known and believed the love that God has in us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. In this is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment, that as He is, so also we are in this world. There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear, because fear has torment. He who fears has not been perfected in love. We love Him because He first loved us. If anyone says, I love God, and hates his brother, he is a liar. For if he does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen? And we have this commandment from Him, that he who loves God should love his brother also. "
There is just sooo much in these verses that continually encourage, challenge and speak to me. Today He is gently reminding me that it all begins with His love for us! We love, because He first loved us.
My love for others should come as a direct result from daily receiving, meditating and resting in His amazing love for me. I am going to stop there and just dwell on that for today.
