June 18, 2020 – I John 3:1-3

See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know Him. Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when He appears we shall be like Him because we shall see Him as he is. And everyone who thus hopes in Him purifies Himself as He is pure. I John 3:1-3.

It has been testified somewhere, “What is man, that you are mindful of him, or the son of man, that you care for him?  You made him for a little while lower than the angels; you have crowned him with glory and honor.  Hebrews 2:6-7. 

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people whom He has chosen as His heritage! Psalm 33:12.  He chose us before the foundation of the world. What is our response to the God who created man and the universe? 

 Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience…Colossians 3:12.  We follow His Commandment to BELIEVE in the name of Jesus and love one another. This is not an option.

Dear God in Heaven, Help our unbelief, help us to love you and others. Help us to walk and talk with you only, seeking your goodness and truth faithfully and always. We pray in the Name of Jesus.  Amen.

Love never ends and bears all things!

And this is His commandment, that we believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as He has commanded us. Whoever keeps His commandments abides in God, and God in Him. And by this, we know that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given us. I John 3:23-24.
