We know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and he who remains in love remains in God, and God remains in him. – 1 John 4:16
When a person comes to the understanding of the love-language of God, that made him come in the form of man to die, this will be his testimony. John is stating a testimony that he understood first-hand; seeing how Jesus came and died for the sins of the world.
He is convinced that God loves us and we should also be. The ultimate sacrifice Jesus underwent, was a response to his love for us. And the bible says that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
While we didn’t even have a chance to please him, he died in hope that we would receive and walk in the fruits of his sacrifice. Therefore, the love of any person is proven by great sacrifices.
This is what marks the sign of knowing God, because it means you have watched and learned the ways of the Supreme God.
So, if anyone walks in love, he abides in God, and God abides in that person. This is the confirmation that a person has truly been reborn and knows God.
Father, help me to always reflect your love to those I come in contact with. May they see that your love is immense and the proof of that love was shown on the cross of Calvary with the death and resurrection of your Son Jesus Christ.
