Verse of the Day: Because He loved us first!

1 John 4:11-12

“Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God abides in us, and His love has been perfected in us.” (NKJV)

“Dear friends, since God loved us that much, we surely ought to love each other. No one has ever seen God. But if we love each other, God lives in us, and His love is brought to full expression in us.” (NLT)

His love is made complete through us.

We can’t do it on our own. We don’t have the strength. But through Him, we are made righteous, we are made new. He gives us what we need to get through the storms of life.

Recognize that it’s Him. It’s always been Him.

God abides in us when we choose to love Him. When we lay it all down at His feet and ask Him to hold us in His everlasting embrace.  

So as we continue to live for Jesus and prioritize our purpose in Him above all else, let us continue to remember all of our undeserved blessings. Waking up this morning. Getting out of bed (some of you may not be yet!). Having opportunities to tell people about the amazing message of hope through your words, through your lives.

Manifest His blessings today. Think of one thing that the Lord has already done for you this morning!
