Daily Devotional – Your Sacrifice, Your Love

Daily Devotional

Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from I John 4:7-12. God is love!

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. 10 This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. 11 Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 12 No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.

The entire Christian faith is based on the spiritual principle that God is love and to truly know Him, we will walk in love. Without love for our brothers and sisters in Christ, not to mention the lost, we cannot know our Heavenly Father, and the opposite is also true. Without love for God, we cannot truly love others. We begin to love others more as we understand the love God Himself has for us.

God is love.

God demonstrated His love for us when He sent his Son to pay the penalty our sins deserved. He sent his Beloved to take upon himself the charges against us. When we were dead in our trespasses, God made us alive in Christ and forgave our sins. He canceled a certificate of debt that we alone owed, nailing it to the cross. This is greatest expression of love. Receive this spiritual principle and walk in it. Love because you have been loved first and then the very love of God will be perfected in you.

Let’s Pray

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you for your love. Thank you that you have forgiven my sins. Thank you that you sent your Son to pay for my sins. Help me please to love as you love. Help me to love those who love me and help me love those who do not. Help me love even my enemies. I realize that when I do, I best reflect you

In Jesus’ name, Amen
