“And we have known and have believed the love which God has in us. God is love, and the one abiding in the love abides in God and God abides in him. In this the love has been perfected among us, that we should have boldness in the day of judgment, because just as He is, we also are in this world.” 1 John 4:16-17 (JHLT)
“…because just as He is, we also are in this world.”
Have you ever stopped and truly considered this statement? I mean really stopped? It’s mind-blowing.
If you are an adopted son or daughter of God, meaning a follower of Jesus, I would encourage you to take some time today and consider the incredible implications of this very simple statement.
Ask yourself this question: “What image of God am I showing to the world?”
