Love is What It’s All About

Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is a child of God and knows God.

1 John 4:7 (NLT)

Battle Drill Daily Devotional

Yesterday’s sermon concluded the series we began back in January, Scandalous Love. You can catch it here. This week we recap the themes of our series.

Read 1 John 4:7-21.

Everyone agrees that love is important. We talk about it. We sing about it. We show it. Sometimes, our society seems obsessed by it.

John remind us that love starts with God. It comes from him. We were created by God to learn to love him and to show his love to others. When we realise that, we come to understand that life really is about love.

If we want to truly know what love is, then first, we must learn to know and love God. To recognise that he is the source of our love. He loves us so much he sent his Son, Jesus Christ, to die for us and to restore our relationship with God.

Jesus shows us perfectly what it means to love God and to love others. Everything he did in life and in death was perfect love.

It is God who gives us the power to love. He lives in our hearts and makes us more and more like his Son, Jesus.

Come, let us all unite to sing:
God is love!
Let Heaven and earth their praises bring,
God is love!
Let every soul from sin awake,
Each in his heart sweet music make,
And sing with us, for Jesus’ sake:
God is love!
