Love Reveals GOD — S3-DE15

Lady V’s Devotional Episode   

1 John 4:7-10 (MSG) says; 

7-10 My beloved friends, let us continue to love each other since love comes from God. Everyone who loves is born of God and experiences a relationship with God. The person who refuses to love doesn’t know the first thing about God, because God is love—so you can’t know him if you don’t love.

This is how God showed his love for us: God sent his only Son into the world so we might live through him. This is the kind of love we are talking about—not that we once upon a time loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to clear away our sins and the damage they’ve done to our relationship with God.

Devotional  

When you look around, watch the nightly news, walk into a department store during the Christmas holidays—what do you see? You find everything but love among people. Why do you think that is? Does ANYONE know God?  

I realized the problem—People that don’t love others can’t know Jesus as LORD. Thus, they don’t know God!  The renewing of your mind begins with faith in Jesus, and time in HIS Word to learn what love is. And it takes learning about Jesus to see what LOVE looks like.  

Truth is—the excellence of LOVE reveals GOD. 

The sacrifice that Jesus made on the Cross for the sins of the world was unselfish, enduring love. This love was kind, thoughtful, truthful, and full of grace.  

Jesus didn’t let someone’s race, financial status, or a political party decide whether He would go on the Cross for them. NO! JESUS let love guide the decisions He made. And we too must let love guide us.  

We must learn how to love others as God has loved us

Besides, race, political status, financial status, etc. doesn’t matter in eternity. Love does! And, let’s not forget—this earth is NOT our eternal home. Jesus said he would go and prepare a place for us. That special place is most certainly immersed in LOVE . 

Beloved, it’s time for us, the church, to start revealing God to the world through love. It shouldn’t be too hard if we know God—right? 

So today, let our hearts show love and stop ignoring WHOSE we are. Let’s start being the SONS and DAUGHTERS of God that the world’s been waiting to meet! 

So rememberLove is patient and Love is kind! Let’s love our neighbors and each other. Let us REVEAL GOD through LOVE! 

And if you need help in your love walk—start spending more time in God’s Word. Allow our HELPER, the Holy Spirit, to teach us how to love—God’s Way! 

Let’s Pray… 

Abba Father,  

Thank you for all that you have done for us. Thank you for showing us your love by sending Jesus to bring Salvation to the world for all that would have faith in HIM. 

Lord God, we want to love like YOU! We know that we cannot do this without your help. Loving others is difficult sometimes. Help us in areas of weakness where we are lacking in our love walk. 

Father, remind us that YOU are LOVE and if we say we know Jesus, our heart should reveal that LOVE in the way we treat others.  

Help us to remember that our relationship with Jesus as Savior and Lord began with faith, love, and grace. Help us to love our neighbors as ourselves, as we walk in faith, love, and grace. 

We need the world to see that as your children, we are set apart by love. Reveal your love through us as we encounter others. Father God, draw us closer to you and your Word; and let it be so that when we say we know you God; that it be the truth and not a lie. Help us to walk in love as your presence RESTS, REIGNS, RULES, and ABIDES in our daily walk, in Jesus’ great name we pray, Amen, Amen, Amen! 

Grace and Peace to you! Have faith in Jesus!  

And remember that—Jesus Is LORD!!!
