A Feeling of Love

In my morning reading of the Scriptures this morning, I read First John chapter four. Perhaps you know the chapter I am talking about, but if not let me share it with you verses seven through nineteen:
 (From the King James Version of the Bible, all sentences that are italicised are the ones that stood out to me.)

 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.

 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

 10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
 
 12 No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.
 
 13 Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.

 14 And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.


 15 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.

 16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

 17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.

 18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

 19 We love him, because he first loved us.

I found such comfort and joy from this chapter. It brought me to tears  as I read of the love my Father in Heaven and Christ have for me.

God bless you,
S. F.

Hullo there, friend! I am thrilled you are here. :)
Comments are always such a blessing.
Just remember Colosians 3:23–24: “And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; … for ye serve the Lord Christ.”
To God be the Glory!
