Welcome to His Encouragement. I have joined with some blogging friends to bring you a new Bible verse every Thursday, and a little discussion of hope and encouragement. We welcome you to join the conversation by adding your daily verse of encouragement as well.
I pray that these Thursday posts become an encouragement to you and help you end your week strong in God’s love and purpose for you. God bless!
Today’s Thursday Encouragement:
Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us,
that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world
does not know us, because it did not know Him.
Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been
revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed
we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.
1 John 3: 1 & 2
Right at first I’m reminded of the song I learned when I was young. Scripture set to music is a fantastic method for helping you remember Bible verses!
Digging deeper into this verse we see a reminder of God’s love for us. He didn’t love us because of anything we did. He bestowed His love on us, because He longs for us to belong to Him.
The world doesn’t understand His love, because it doesn’t see it in us. The world doesn’t see it in us, because we don’t always show God’s love like we should. Too often we have conditions to our love.
As a child of God, It is my prayer that God will help me show His love more fully to everyone He brings to cross my path.
Now it is your turn!
What Bible verse is blessing you today?
