May 12 Life-Changing Moments With God

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.

Father God, Your love has been poured out in my heart by Your Holy Spirit who was given to me. I did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but I received the Spirit of adoption by whom I cry out, “Abba, Father.”

The Spirit Himself bears witness with my spirit that I am Your child, Father God. I believe in Your Son and have the witness in myself.

In this the love of God was manifested toward me, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that I might live through Him. In Him I have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace. That in the ages to come You might show the exceeding riches of Your grace, Father, in Your kindness toward me in Christ Jesus.

Since, Lord God, You so loved me, I also ought to love others.

You are love, God! It’s Your very nature! Fill me with that love, I ask, so that I might honor You as I love people with Your love.
