Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.
This is how we know that we live in him and he in us: He has given us of his Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in them and they in God. And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.
God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.
We love because he first loved us. Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen. And he has given us this command: Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister.
I am feeling a need of love right now; Your love to be spread to the people of this world. My heart is breaking, crumbling in two for the people of Japan, for the people who do not know You. I am bleeding Lord. Is this You? Daddy it hurts...they hurt...they cry...they are over whelmed. There is a need, a complete need for Your love to pour out over and through them, Father have mercy. :( Lord, my God have mercy and take pity on them. Yes they have ignored You and turned their back to You but You are just and loving and kind. Send in messengers to spread Your love and Your word. Open their hearts to You, let them see the foolishness of their ways and draw them into repentance. Jesus You are good, Your Holy Name I hold up and praise. Have mercy.
I love you Dad, please cover the people on my heart, You know those who lie special in my heart, cover them in Your blood. Forgive me for any sin I have not acknowledged, show me my wrong and cleanse me of it. I want to pray Your heart. I desire You and Your ways.
Precious Jesus, in Your might Name I pray, amen.
