1 John 4:16 – King James Bible – And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him
1 John 4:16 – New Living Translation – We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love. God is love, and all who love live in God, and God lives in them.
1 John 4:16 – Amplified Bible – We know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and he who remains in love remains in God, and God remains in him.
Key – Love is the nature of a true believer; it’s a symbol of the presence of God in us.
Action – In Matthew 24:12 Christ made it known that in the last days ‘the love of many shall wax cold’…we are in the days and its clear to all that love has lost its significance in our society. Howbeit, as Light of the world that we are, we must remain steadfast in love and be a leading example also preaching love to others. The love we preach is the gospel of Christ because in it dwells the love of God.
