Topic: The Love For God
1 John 4:7 – 12
7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.
10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
12 No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.
Romans 5: 8 – But God commendeth his love toward us.
MFM Daily Devotional 26th July 2021 OUTLINE
True love for God comes from the heart, because out of the heart comes desire, thoughts, emotion and action. Therefore, true love for God will ﬂow from a pure heart and ﬁll you with the desire to please God. To show true love for God, you must do the following: You must have reverent fear for Him, evangelise, tell others about this wonderful Father, what He has done, what He is doing and what He is capable of doing.
There are many people out there who need to hear about this wonderful Father; you need to go for such people. That is a wonderful way to show true love for God. It is written, “But God commendeth His love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Let us also make sacriﬁces for the unsaved. To show true love for God, we must be patient with others. We must trust and love them without conditions.
The Bible says, “Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.” God ﬁrst loved us and He deserves that we love our fellow men. By doing this, we are reciprocating His love for us and also making others to know us as followers of Christ. I mean His disciples (John 13:34-35). The Bible also says that you cannot claim to love God who you don’t see but hate your brother who is daily beside you (1John 4:20).
Unfortunately, some people come to church but do not greet their immediate neighbour, and they do not bother about that brother or sister in their fellowship. When last did you show love to someone outside your family? True love for God will make you manifest the attributes of God which others will see and glorify your Father in heaven.
Beloved, are you kind, gentle, patient and tolerant with others? Are you a humble and broken person? If yes, continue to live out the life of God in you by loving others.
Our loving God must be part of our lives. We must acknowledge Him every moment as our most beloved.
God shall give you the spirit of revelation and wisdom in Him, in the name of Jesus.
O God, I know that Thou art mine
O God, I know that Thou art mine
And I will not leave Thee,
Till all I have become Thine own
And I shall be renewed.
I hold to thee with trembling hands
And I will not leave Thee;
Till in the faith, I’m established
And Thy goodness I know.
When will the moment come, O Lord
When Thou will dwell in me;
Spirit of life and pow’r and might
And of perfect wisdom.
Lord let the triumph of Thy love
Be shed abroad within
That my feet may ne’er go astray
But, be grounded in Thee.
Thy Holy flame, grant that it may
Light up within my heart;
To burn the dross of wicked lust
And melt the heart of stone.
Let Thy fire come down from above
And consume all my sins
Come, Holy Spirit, hear my cry
Come, Thou Spirit of fire.
