Reading: 1 John 4:10
This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
Thought: Love does not just feel for its object when life goes wrong, it rolls its sleeves up and get’s involved to put things right even if it costs to do so. To say that God loves us does not mean that he watches from afar moved but inactive. In light of this, what does it mean for us to love God and to love our neighbours?
Prayer: Spirit, teach us to love, to feel and to act.
