“Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and everyone that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. In this was manifested the love of God towards us, because that God sent his Son—to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us. Hereby know we that we dwell in him; and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit”.
1 John 4:7-13
LIGHT FOR NOW: Jesus is the embodiment of God’s love.
The love of Christ is not a mystery. It surpasses all knowledge that the physical world carries. When you know the love of Christ that passes all understanding, you come into the fullness of God. The love of Christ is the love of God. To know the love of Christ is to know the love of God as revealed in Christ. Jesus is the embodiment of God’s love. Jesus is the expression of the love of God. He is God’s love dispensed, poured out, expressed, manifested and displayed. To know the love of God is to know Christ. The moment you get born again, you conform to Christ. When you get born again, the totality of God, all of God’s power and anointing comes into your inside. You become the totality of God; Christ in you, the hope of glory. When Christ rose from the dead triumphantly, defeating sin, death and Satan, He became the first-fruit of the born-again. He was the prototype of the born-again. A prototype is an example. Today, when you believe in Christ and get born again, you are exactly like Jesus; no more, no less for as He is, so are we in this world (1 John 4:17).
Whatever cannot fight Jesus cannot fight you. Whatever cannot defeat Jesus cannot defeat you. What is in Jesus is also in you. Whatever that cannot be found in Jesus cannot be found in you. All these identification is to bring us to the love of God. Jesus is the love of God demonstrated. When you look at Jesus, all you will see is the love of God. Jesus is God’s love communicated to mankind. He is God who became a man in order to reveal God to man. Jesus is God who came in human flesh to defend the singular character of God. Jesus did not come to explain God; Jesus is God explaining Himself. He is God revealing Himself in human flesh. This is the love of God.
INSTRUCTION: Believe in the love of God.
Prayer: Father, thank you for loving me this much, in Jesus Name!
QUOTE: Jesus is God’s love communicated to mankind.
