Day 16 - God is Love

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. This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have
confidence 
on 
the 
day 
of 
judgment: 
In 
this 
world 
we 
are 
like 
Jesus. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.
1 John 4:16-18

God 
is 
love. 
Everything 
about 
his 
character 
is 
perfectly 
loving. 
He 
 cannot 
be 
otherwise. 
We 
know 
how 
much 
God 
loves 
us 
because 
he 
sent 
 his 
Son 
to 
die 
for 
us.

Is 
there 
any 
better 
feeling 
than 
being 
loved? 
To 
know 
that 
someone 
 loves 
us 
gives 
us 
a 
sense 
of 
assurance, 
a 
sense 
of 
being 
special. 
That 
 feeling 
can 
be 
ours 
every 
day 
because 
of 
God’s 
love 
for 
us. 
God 
has 
 taken 
up 
residence 
in 
our 
lives 
through 
his 
Holy 
Spirit;; 
therefore, 
love 
 has 
taken 
up 
residence 
in 
our 
lives. 
We 
literally 
“live 
in 
love.” 
We 
are 
 surrounded 
by 
it, 
filled 
with 
it. 
Love 
envelops 
us 
every 
moment 
of 
every 
 day. 
Such 
love 
fills 
us 
and 
then 
overflows 
to 
other 
people, 
like 
water 
 from 
a 
fountain. 
The 
result 
of 
such 
love? 
We 
will 
not 
be 
afraid 
on 
the 
 day 
of 
judgment. 
God 
promises 
that 
we 
will 
be 
able 
to 
face 
him 
with 
 confidence 
because 
we 
know 
that 
our 
salvation 
is 
sure.

We 
can 
trust 
in 
this 
God 
who 
is 
love. 
We 
can 
also 
pray 
for 
others 
to 
 sense 
God’s 
love 
and 
know 
their 
salvation 
is 
certain.

God’s Promise to Me
•I 
love 
you.
•As 
I 
live 
in 
you, 
your 
love 
will 
grow 
more 
perfect.
•Because 
of 
my 
love, 
you 
need 
not 
fear 
the 
day 
of 
judgment 
but 
can 
 be 
confident 
in 
your 
salvation.

My Prayer to God
Fill 
me 
with 
your 
love, 
O 
God. 
May 
it 
overflow 
on 
others 
like 
a 
fountain 
 of 
refreshment.
