"No one has ever seen God. But if we love each other, God lives in us, and his love is brought to full expression in us."|
(1 John 4:12, NLT)
|A Picture of God|
Most people have photos in their home of treasured times as a family or with friends. You probably enjoy showing those photos to others and sharing those special moments. But have you ever thought about having a picture of God in your house? It may not be in a frame on the shelf, but this scripture tells us that when we love others we are creating a picture of God. We are showing others what He looks like because God is love.
God wants us to know Him. He wants to reveal Himself in and through us. He wants us to display His love and share it with others. First Corinthians 13 tells us what love looks like—it’s patient, kind, gentle, and so much more. You are never more like God than when you are loving others. Love never fails. Always remember, the greatest thing you could ever have or do is love. Everything else will fade away, but His love is a picture that will last forever!
|A Prayer for Today|
|"Father, I invite You today to show me Your love which lasts forever. Help me to love others the way You love them so that my life can be a picture of You in Jesus’ name. Amen."|
