What Kind of Love?
“See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him.” 1 John 3:1
Have you ever spent time with a couple that were so in love with each other they seemed to be inseparable and operated as one? I’m not talking about a new love where they know nothing about each other; I mean a couple that has been together for 30 or 40 years and seems closer today than when they met as teenagers?! This commitment, passion, and friendship all in one is a picture of what God desires for each one of us. The process of walking with the Lord is a lifelong journey that is a friendship and a love relationship to mold us into the image of Jesus during our lifetime. Jesus said, “In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”
It’s not good to brag on what we give, but what we do is what others see and how people know God. The reason the world doesn’t know God is because they haven’t seen His love in us. Let your light shine today through the love of Jesus so the world can know He is the way!
We’re more than conquerors in Christ.
