Read this verse twice slowly, focusing on the important words and ideas.
1 John 4:8 Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.
Below are four ways you can pray through 1 John 4:8 personally or with your family.
Confession: I fail so often at loving people. You are love, and I am sorry for the times I have not loved people with Your love.
Adoration: Your love in unique; it is singular in this universe! As I think about Your love, I worship You for who You are.
Thanksgiving: Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. Thank You that, in love, You emptied Yourself of glory, took the form of a servant, and gave Your life for me.
Supplication: Out of the covenant love You have for me, help me show love to everyone I work with this week.
