Citizen Of Heaven

From a parent to a child, from a husband and wife, in tennis, from Romeo and Juliet, from the end of a letter, to British ‘friendly form of address,’ the word ‘love’ is shown and is all around us.

But in today’s world the word ‘love’ has seemed to become deluded.

However, 1 John 4: 7-21 is all about God’s love. God’s love is different than the love of shoes or the love a boyfriend or girlfriend. His love is more than the love of a parent. It isn’t just affection or endearment.

If I am uncertain of my standing with God, my walk with God will reflect it.

The apostle John wrote: “And so we know and rely on the love God has for us” (I John 4:16).

Do you know and rely on God’s love for you?

If you battle uncertainty, allow the truths below to transform your understanding of the security of God’s love for you.

Romans 8:31-34
