Food for the Soul ~ I John 4:19

Happy Sunday, Friends! Thanks so much for stopping by. Today's verse is a short one, but it is powerful. "We love because He first loved us." - I John 4:19 

Let that sink in... Because He first loved us, we not only have the ability to love others (putting their needs before our own), but also the desire and mandate to do so. Isn't it wonderful that our Creator gave us the perfect example of how to love? (But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. - Romans 5:8) 
He wouldn't give us a command without showing us the way to accomplish it. What a beautiful picture of sacrificial love... Jesus giving His life so that we might be saved! Wishing you a week full of love and peace!
