1 John 4:7-12

1 Passage: 1 John 4:7-12

1 Verse:
Verse 10. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

1 Prayer: Thank You, Father, for loving us so much that You freely allowed Your Son Jesus to give His life for our sins. You know how many sins separate me from You, and yet none of them are enough that they can't be covered by Jesus' love. Love covers a multitude of sins. There can't be too many sins to keep me from You, for where sins increase, grace abounds all the more. And Father I confess that I am often painfully aware of how little I love You in return. I obsess over what looks to me like my lack of love for You. But here in Your word You tell me that love is not to be found in me toward You, but in You toward me. Forgive me not only for my lack of love, but for thinking it is up to me to manufacture it. Love is from You and You alone. You are love. Thank You for loving me and allowing some of that love to be directed through me to others and thereby back to You.
