Whoever confesses and acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. We have come to know [by personal observation and experience], and have believed [with deep, consistent faith] the love which God has for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides continually in him. (1 John 4:15-16)
Jesus is the Son of God, and through Him, we can experience the love of God. He came to live in us so that we can live in Him. This love is found in Jesus of Nazareth, the one who lived, and died, and rose again from the dead.
Today, I pray that people would accept Jesus of Nazareth as the Son of God. Soften their hearts, and open their eyes to the reality of your love for them. You sent Jesus, into the world, so that by believing in Him, no one would perish, but everyone would come to eternal life.
Thank you, Father, for initiating this love, to you Jesus for being the demonstration of this love, and for you, Holy Spirit, for bringing us to repentance and faith in Jesus. Amen.
