What Does 1 John 4:7 Mean?

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.

1 John 4:7(ESV)

Verse Thoughts

Love is the source and the summation of righteousness and love is the new commandment that Christ gave His disciples as He prepared to leave them to be His witnesses upon the earth – love as I have loved you.

Love flows from the heart of God to us and love is to flow though us to others as we are filled and replenished with His love in our hearts. Love is the nature of God and from Him burst forth the fruit of His Spirit, which is rooted and grounded in love.

Love for the world emanated from the heart of the Father to a world of lost sinners and love breathes in new life to the dead spirit of all who believe on His name. And we are exhorted by the apostle of love – beloved – let US love one another because God is Love and Love is of God.

My Prayer

Loving Father, I can only love others with Your love as Your love floods into my heart, for of myself my love is so limited. Pour forth Your love into my heart so that the love of Jesus streams out from me as rivers of His living water, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
