“Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. 8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. 9 This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. 10 This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. 11 Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 12 No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.” (1 John 4:7-12)
Every part of your life is meant to be fueled, sustained, and empowered by the love that comes from God. Just as He modeled love to us by sending Jesus, we get to learn love for each other through Him. Are there parts of your story or life where this just seems…impossible? Maybe you aren’t sure how you could ever find the love God commands us to give for a certain person or circumstance. Remember that you alone, cannot muster up the love. God Himself must do it. We encourage you to ask Jesus to come help guide you and your choices. God’s love makes itself complete inside your life. He is faithful and capable to sustain you and all that you might need. Jesus washes you when you believe in Him. You’re born of God!
