Our Scripture reading today is 1 John 4:7-8.
Verse 8, "He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love."
Is the love of God in you? I am not asking if God loves you. God is love. God does love you. Maybe a better way to ask the question is, "Can the love of God be seen in you?" As followers of Jesus Christ, we should love what He loves. Do we really love Jesus Christ? Do we love our family? Do we love the church? Do we love the lost?
I am seeing in these days a lessening of love for the church. The love for the church should be increasing. Our involvement in the church should be increasing. Our giving to the church should be increasing. As we see the coming of the Lord, we should love what He loves. May we evaluate our love for the things of the Lord. If something needs to change, by God's grace we ought to change it. Our God is worthy!
