Sunday, February 6, 2005

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 4:12

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

What an incredible thought! God can be seen in my home. The Father of the universe lives in my church. The Almighty God's love is recognizable in my life. How so? When I love those around me, when they love me back, when we choose to be loving instead of petty, unforgiving, critical, and harsh, God's presence, power, and perfection are revealed in us!

My Prayer...

O Father, please make your presence, power, and perfection known through my love for your children and their love for each other. In Jesus' name I ask this. Amen.
