1 John 4:12
No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God abides in us, and His love has been perfected in us.
-We are created in Gods image, thus when we love one another God abides in us. For he who does not love does not know God, for God is love (1 John 4:8). Love is the greatest fruit of the Holy Spirit for it suffers long, it is kind, does not envy, does not parade itself, does not behave rudely, is not self seeking, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails (1 Cor 13:4-8). It is in these traits that we achieve perfection in our Christian character, for His image is reflected in our thoughts, words & actions. Love does not rejoice in iniquity for Gods commands are true & our love for Him is achieved. Love bears all things; bringing in the element of forgiveness which covers a multitude of sins (1 Pet 4:8), for if we forgive one another, love is evident in us & God forgives us also.
Lord our Father, we thank for Your love & mercy upon us through Your son Jesus Christ. Instill the same love & mercy in us that we may love one another & have the heart of forgiveness. Lead our way & cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Bless our country Kenya with Your love, peace & unity; especially this time of elections. Give us true & faithful leaders who will propel our country forward with a vision of prosperity & hope for all. Abide in our hearts forever. Amen
Blessed Madaraka day.
