“And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.” 1 John 4:16

“Know and rely on the love” means the Christian lives within the sphere of God’s love; means that love is both experienced and expressed through the Christian’s life.

Martin Luther said this about this verse, “These are simple words, but they are words that require faith in the highest degree—faith against which everything that is not of the Spirit of God fights. Conscience, the devil, hell, the judgment of God, and everything resist, in order that we may not believe that God is love but may believe that God is an Executioner and a Judge”.

He who has a true knowledge of God abides in Christ, and Christ abides in him.

God’s blessing on your day…
