|Theme:||Knowing God's Love - Showing God's Love|
|Scripture:||But God shows his love for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 (NIV) If anyone says, "I love God," yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen. 1 John 4:20 (NIV)|
How do we know that God loves us? Do we have to pick the petals off of a daisy and hope that the answer is, "He loves Me!" No, there is a very easy way to know that God loves us. The Bible tells us that God showed his love for us when Jesus, His only Son, died for us on the cross! If someone is willing to die for you, you don't have to wonder if they love you or not. You know they love you!
How does God know that we love Him? Does He know that we love Him just because we say we do? No. Once again, we find the answer in the Bible. The Bible says that we show our love for God by loving others. The Bible says we can't say that we love God when we have never seen Him, if we don't love our brothers and sisters that we see every day.
It's easy for us to see that God loves us. Is it easy for God to see that we love Him?
Dear Lord, we say that we love you. Help us to show you that we love you by loving one another. Amen.
