Love God, love others // 14-06-19

“Our love for others is our grateful response to the love God first demonstrated to us.” 1 John‬ ‭4:19‬ ‭TPT

Love is not just a feeling or something we say, it has to be shown, practiced, out-worked in the things we do for others. Our love for God is not measured in how much we pray or read the Bible, or sing worship songs, but in how much we love other people, and especially by how much we love our brothers and sisters in Christ (1 John 4:20-21). Lord, I am so grateful for the way You have loved me, help me to be present, willing and generous in my love for others. Help me to be compassionate, patient, kind and forgiving, and may people see You, and know how much they are loved by You, through the love they get from me. Amen 🙏🏼
