Today´s reading:
OT: Daniel 11:36-, Daniel 12
NT: I John 4
Ps: Psalm 123
Pr: Proverbs 29:2-4

Today´s notable verse:

We love because he first loved us.

I John 4:19 (NIV)

Only seven words, yet they contain such depth. "We love because he first loved us." Without God's love for us, exemplified in Christ, we would now know the true meaning of love. Without God's love for us, demonstrated in Christ, we would not have the freedom from sin and guilt nor the ability to love. Without God's love for us, carried out through Christ, we would have no reason to love.
