Word-Filled Wednesday - 1 John 3:16-24

|


The purpose of Word-Filled Wednesday is to share God’s word through photo and a verse.




"This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for one another. If any one of you has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in you? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue, but with actions and in truth. This is how we know that we belong to the truth and how we set our hearts at rest in his presence: If our hearts condemn us, we know that God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything. Dear friends, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God and receive from him anything we ask, because we keep his commands and do what pleases him. And this is his command: to believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as he commanded us. Those who keep his commands live in him, and he in them. And this is how we know that he lives in us: We know it by the Spirit he gave us. " 1 John 3:16-24

Beautiful message.

May we LOVE WITH HEARTS OF JESUS!

Melanie, I wanted to encourage you today. I just felt the Holy Spirit lead me to tell you that you are so deeply loved by the LORD. He sees your heart and knows your desires for your loved ones. He HEARS your prayers. He sees and knows your unwaivering love for HIM. Stand fast in the days and times to come for you are deeply treasured by our LORD.

I love you dear friend and I give GOD the glory for all He is doing in your life.

Great verse and picture, and I'm so glad you shared the rest of the Scripture! What an excellent call to be Jesus with skin on. Loving with action and truth reminds me of my husband. Since Kristyn and Corey bought a house he has made so many trips over to do little "handyman" things for them. Seeing his servant heart in action inspires me, and I know his inspiration comes from God. Happy WFW to you.
