“KNOW AND LOVE” “KNOW AND LOVE”“We are from God; he who knows God hears us; he who is not from God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error. Beloved, let us love one another; because love is of God. Everyone who loves is born of God, and knows God. “(1 John 4: 6-7)There is a deep relationship between love and knowledge: How can we find out all the details of someone or something if we do not have a genuine and real esteem for it? If we love a place, we want to explore it every inch.When we love someone it is safe, that we know about that person their likes, preferences, imperfections and from there we gain confidence to express our experiences, attitudes and even failures.However, situations occur in which we fear allowing others to know us, because in turn, we may feel that by revealing who we are, we could end up being rejected.Together with GOD in this relationship of love and knowledge, there is a great difference: We should not worry about our imperfections, because His love is infinitely superior to ours. Romans 5: 8 tells us: “But God shows his love for us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” In fact, He makes Himself known to us. Through the scriptures and JESUS CHRIST, the LORD reveals His true character and love to us.The LORD opens himself up to us as the MERCIFUL FATHER that he is. This is how he loves us, despite our mistakes and in that love we can trust him with our failures with nothing to fear.For this reason, knowing GOD is loving Him and loving Him consequently implies knowing Him, through His Word, fulfilling it with faith, day by day.Dear LORD, give me the wisdom to know and understand you each day through your word. Allow me today to thank you through my work, not the blessings that you have brought to my life, but your love that has made them possible. That love that is abundant, indispensable and sufficient, in any situation, to keep me. In the name of JESUS. Amen and Amen.
