1 JOHN 4:12
"No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us."
Do you want love to be made complete in you? Brought to full maturity - brought to full expression in your life? 1 JOHN 4 tells us how simple God made it for us to be perfected in love.
Love one another. He showed us this love first. His Son, "the Sent One", died in our place, taking our sin on Himself, covered us with His righteousness, and was resurrected by the power of His Spirit, whom He has given to us. God is love. As He is in this world, so are we. Abiding in perfect love that always casts out fear. Abiding in His perfect love that reveals His Good character and nature towards us. Abiding in perfect love that establishes trust.
It is from this revelation of His love that we choose to love one another. And in choosing to love one another, our love is perfected! So beloved, let us love one another. (Note: declare and pray 1 Corinthians 13:4-13 in first person)
