1 John 4:19 (pool of love)

1 John 4:19
We love because he first loved us.

Love loved us…

…and we love because Love loved us.

I cannot get over this. Love and God cannot be separated because God is love and love is God. And when we love others…it’s like we give them a piece of God. If your relationship with God suffers, your ability to love with the pure love of God, suffers as well. I have found that the days it is hardest to love are often the days with little or no quality God time. You must first sit in the pool of love and soak it up, before  you can squeeze it into the lives of others. Soak up Love today. And wring it out into the hearts of many.

John 1:6 (insert your name)

“There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.”

John 1:6

Insert your name in there.

“There was a man (or, woman) sent from God, whose name was (your name).

That’s crazy to me. God. God. Do we understand who this is? God. To think that He would choose me – you – and send us to carry His truth to others? To be used of God, to be sent by God…what an honor.

“These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace.

In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.”

John 16:33

In the heat of the battle, remember this: we do not fight for victory, but rather, from victory.

Do take heart, my friend.
