Love Visibly…Love Invisibly

Read

  1 John 4:20

If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?  (NKJV)
If anyone says “I love  God” and yet hates his fellow Christian, he is a liar, because the one who does not love his fellow Christian who he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen.  (NET)
If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for the one who does not love his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen.  (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.
