Beyond the Gospels: 1John

Today’s Scripture: 1 John 4:7-21
[Read the Word before you read what’s below. Click the reference to read online.]

The central reality of the revelation of God’s love is made plain in Christ. Those born of God find His love reproduced in their love for one another. Love is born in each one by the work of God. When we receive God’s love as revealed in Jesus, our inner being is awakened to love.

God proved His love on the cross. Christ died that all might live through Him, for Him, with Him. Christians are expected to love each other for Jesus’s sake and because they have experienced the love of God through Him.

Everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. But we only love because He first loved us. His commandment is the goal of His love, transformation of hearts in order to love one another as He loves us.

Thought for today: God’s love has the power to awaken love in the inner being of everyone.

Almighty God, thank You for manifesting Your love within us.
Thank You for Your abiding Spirit so we may know that You
indeed dwell within us.
