The One Who Resides in Love Resides in God

Read

  1 John 4:16

And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.  (NKJV)
And we have come to know and to believe the love that God has in us. God is love, and the one who resides in love resides in God, and God resides in him. (NET)
We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. (NASB)

Reflect

Think about the scriptural text you just read and take from it what the Lord wants to give you. Repeat the text to yourself. Memorize it. Allow it to sink into you.

Respond

Respond to the Lord by thanking Him for His unfailing love toward you…by, through and in Christ Jesus.

Rest

Finally, simply rest in the Word of God and in His presence. Abide in the Lord and allow Him to abide in you by and through His Word.
