“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.”
1 John 4:7-10 MSG
If God is Love, and the ultimate demonstration of this Love was that Jesus died (taking our punishment) for our sins, rising from the dead (therefore conquering death and the power of sin over us)…what does this mean for us?
What was the ultimate result of this act of love from Love himself? “clear away our sins and the damage they’ve done to our relationship with God.”
If we are in a pursuit of this true love, then true love should lead/point us and those around us into right relationship with God, Love.
Where’s love taking you?
