TRUTH & LOVE
Jesus is Truth     God is Love
(John 14:6)          (1 John 4:16)

“This is how God showed His love for us: God sent His only Son into the world so that we might live through Him.” (4:9 MSG)

Love sent Truth to me.

“Everyone who confesses that Jesus is God’s Son participates continuously in an intimate relationship with God.” (4:15 MSG)

Truth takes me to Love.

“…God…loved us and sent His Son as a sacrifice to clear away our sins and the damage they’ve done to our relationship with God…” (4:10 MSG)

Love can truly live in me.

“…If we love one another, God dwells deeply within us, and His love becomes complete in us—perfect love!” (4:12 MSG)

The more I let Your truth become a part of my life through obedience to You, Lord, will Your love then become more a part of my life too?  Take my mind and transform it so that Your will becomes my own.  Weed the garden of my heart, pulling out the thorns of pride, jealousy, bitterness, etc., and allow Your love to flourish, grow and bear fruit from within me.  Keep working on me until I love just like Jesus.  Amen.
