1 John 4:7 (VOICE) My loved ones, let us devote ourselves to loving one another. Love comes straight from God, and everyone who loves is born of God and truly knows God.
Beloved, I AM love. It is not simply that I love you without measure, but that I AM love itself. And you are made in My image. So love like Me – without restraint or limitation, without taking offense or growing impatient – love as I love.
Love doesn’t mean always agreeing with someone, but it does mean being kind and long suffering when you don’t agree. And love doesn’t mean allowing yourself to be abused, but it does mean hoping for the best about that person and releasing them to Me.
So, beloved, choose to love and love well. For walking in love shares your faith faster and more effectively than any words could accomplish. And loving well makes you more and more like Me.
