Truth and Love
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.
