"We know how much God loves us,
and we have put our trust in his love.
God is love, and all who live in love live
in God, and God lives in them. And as
we live in God, our love grows more
perfect. So we will not be afraid on the
day of judgment, but we can face him
with confidence because we live like
Jesus here in this world. Such love has
no fear, because perfect love expels all
fear. If we are afraid, it is for fear of
punishment, and this shows that
we have not fully experienced his perfect
love. We love each other because he
loved us first. If someone says, "I love God,"
but hates a Christian brother or sister, that
person is a liar; for if we don’t love people
we can see, how can we love God, whom
we cannot see? And he has given us this
command: Those who love God must also
love their Christian brothers and sisters."
(1 John 4:16-21)
We realize that though we can’t see or touch
God, we can see and touch and serve other people.
We love God back by loving others he loves,
particularly fellow Christians.
Learning to love God is a lifetime process that
starts with an acknowledgment of his love for
us and grows as we learn to serve and love
Thank you for loving me oh God,
help me to love and serve others.
Through Jesus Love AMEN
