When we love others, we know that we belong to the truth, and we feel at ease in the presence of God. But even if we don't feel at ease, God is greater than our feelings, and he knows everything. Dear friends, if we feel at ease in the presence of God, we will have the courage to come near him.
1 John 3: 19 - 21
God is awesome, powerful and truly amazing! It does take great courage to come near to God. When you step into the presence of God Almighty, you can know for sure that He knows everything about you. God knows your strengths and yes, He knows your weaknesses, all of them!
Even the person who is the dearest to you in all this world does not know all of your thoughts, but God does! So how can you have the courage to come close to the One who knows everything about you? These verses from 1 John 3 tell us that loving others helps us to feel at ease in the presence of God.
God is Love, and when we walk in love for other people, we are comfortable being close to God.
So, if your goal for this day is to come close to God, the only way to do that is to focus your life on acting out of love for other members of the human race! It will certainly change you, both now and forever!
“Thank You Jesus for showing me how to love others so that I might come close to You. Praise Your Holy Name. Amen.”
