The Purpose of His Love • 1 John 4:9

“By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him.” 1 John 4:9
When we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we receive so many special blessings and opportunities. We are free from sin and become servants to God, having fruit unto holiness, and the end, everlasting life (Romans 6:22). We now have the choice not to sin and to live through Jesus. If this is the way we are living, we are being fruitful in heavenly things, which pleases God. What a special opportunity we have, to show God how grateful and thankful we are to Him through the way we live. Lord, please fill us with Your spirit, so that we may have self-control and please You through our actions.
