“Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.”—1 John 4:7-12 (NIV)


Father, thank You for not only loving me so fully, completely, and deeply that You sent Your Son to save me, but also for showing me what love is and using me to show others how much You love them. I pray that each day I would grow in my love for You and that through that love, I would grow in my love for others. Amen.


Pray for the love of Jesus to sweep over you and pour out unto others so His love may be complete in you. Think about three ways you can love someone this week!
