Daily Devotional

28 September

10 In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 12 No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us. (1 John 4:10-12, ESV)

In marriage counseling, I often ask couples to define ‘love.’ It is amazing the varied responses I get. Do you really want to know what love is? It is defined by God. He is the originator and the purest example of true love. He goes on to declare that just as we enjoy His love we are to return that love to others. Love others in the manner which God loves you!

Prayer: Lord, this is hard, but strengthen me to do so.
