Daily Bread – July 15, 2022 (The Sixth Day – Genesis 1:24-31) 1 John 4:7-8 – Beloved, let us love one another; because he that loves is from God; and everyone that loves is begotten of God and knows God. He that does not love, does not know God – for God is love. The Evidence Of Knowing God: Loving With His Love The most important expression and evidence of the new birth is the love of God. This kind of love is perfectly defined by the life of Jesus, Who loved us so much He laid down His life that we might live. God’s love, by definition, is a holy love; one that is giving and unselfish, and was revealed to all mankind when God so loved the world He gave His only begotten Son (John 3). This holy love fulfills all of the law and purpose of God for man in that it works no wrong-doing (Romans 13:10; 1 Corinthians 13:4-8). This is a protective love that would do everything to rescue a soul from sin, and do whatever necessary to keep them from sin and its dreadful fate. God’s love cannot be manifested through mankind until we have been begotten of God. When we are born of God, the Holy Spirit fills us with the love of God, and His love flows as long as we are yielded to Him. If we will dwell in love, we will dwell in God. If we are willing to know the love of Christ that passes knowledge, then we will be filled with all the fullness of God (Ephesians 3:18-19). If we do not love one another as Christ loves the Church, then we are refusing to walk in the Spirit, and are in breach of our relationship with God (John 15:12; 1 Thessalonians 4:9; 1 John 4:2, 4:8).
