Truth and Love

March 8, 2009

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

1 John 4 discusses the importance of truth and love in you as a believer,  a believer in faith in Jesus Christ as the Son of God, Savior of the World, Redeemer of Truth, the Word, The Way, The Life.

1 John 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.  1 John 4:8 The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love.

1 John 4:11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.

How do you choose to love God each day?  Some suggestions—

Love yourself, find a way to forgive yourself, find a way to choose freedom from your past.

Love others,  say fewer angry hurtful words to others, even when they don’t deserve it.  You don’t have to be a doormat,  but you can choose to find a way to redeem every situation and offer a loving response or perspective.  God chose to redeem in the strength of Christ dying on the Cross,  choose a loving strength that honors God.

Smile, receive more joy, live in truth more, choose to receive the love that God is offering you.
