Leverage Devotional For Today Message:

God is love. To know God is to know love. To be born of God is to be born of love. The depth of God’s love is vividly displayed through the sacrificial gift of His only begotten Son, revealing the profound extent of His compassion for humanity. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that he gave his only son.” This limitless love is also evident in God’s generosity towards Adam, who, as a testament to God’s benevolence and graciousness, was created in God’s image and received dominion over the universe. Despite the disobedience of man to God’s will, God did not stop loving man. God, in His benevolence, still sent His only Son to atone for our sins. Romans 5:8 says that “…God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” What a remarkable demonstration of love! God does not just love; He is love. Love is His nature.

Just as you are born of God, you are born of love. This means the same love nature of God is also your nature. God has revealed His love to us and He also expects us to share that love with others. “Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.” (1 John 4:11). This is how we prove that we are truly God’s children (John 13:35). To love others, we first need to know and believe in God’s love because we can’t share what we don’t possess. By understanding and meditating on God’s love for us, we learn how to extend that love to others. Therefore, beloved, let the goodness of God fill you, and love will naturally flow from you. This is the only authentic way to show that you are His. Everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. You are love, just like your Father, so be kind, merciful and gracious unto others.

My Solid Front (Confession)
Father, I’m grateful for Your love. Thank You for the gift of Your only Son, Jesus. Thank You, Father, for the grace to walk in love. I acknowledge your goodness towards me, and I do not take it for granted in Jesus’ name. Amen.
