Today's Verse: 1 John 4:9

Wednesday, February 3, 2021

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.
— 1 John 4:9

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Showing love is about sharing life with someone else. No one quite epitomizes this principle like Jesus! His sacrifice, however, is what saved us and brought us to our new life in Christ. Now God wants us to show his love to others by sharing it in ways that they can understand and appreciate.

My Prayer...

Holy LORD, my heavenly Father, thank you for today. Help me share my life with someone else who needs to experience your grace. Please help me notice those who are wounded and please give me the wisdom on the best way to lead them back to you. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
