No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.
1 John 4:12 NIV
Every human being who is alive now, or has ever lived, has craved one thing – to be loved. We were designed to live in relationship with others, and when we know we are loved, when we know we are valued, we live life with a deep sense of purpose and satisfaction. If this is so when we know we are loved by other human beings, it is even more so when we have experienced the love of our Creator God through faith in Jesus Christ. God loves us so dearly that He sent His only Son – that assures us of our eternal value and worth. The apostle writes about this in 1 John 4:12: “No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.” John here is speaking to followers of Jesus, those of us who have experienced Jesus in a life-transforming way. We have met Him by faith and though we haven’t seen Him with our physical eyes, we have come to know the joy of His love for us. Pass that love on to others and His love becomes complete.
These have been words from the heart.
