A Daily Devotion for Wednesday, April 14


1John 3:1-7


verse 1: How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!

Sometimes I lose sight of God’s love for me, because I am not feeling it. That is so wrong. Just the fact I am walking on this earth is a miracle of love. But beyond that to the everyday, God is as much “in touch” with me as I am able and willing to seek Him. Answered prayers are gifts from God, showing me clearly He is listening. I think of the last time I saw my mom before she died (three years ago last week). I stopped by her room on the way to the airport to fly home. It was early in the morning, and I usually would not stop because she tended to sleep a little later. And, it was hard for me to see her so changed, thin, blind and unhearing, unable to respond to me. I often skipped that last quick visit. But that day I stopped. And her eyes were wide open, and she was being fed. I could see my mom in those eyes, that face and body, and I was filled with God’s love for her. I knew He was keeping her company, as I had prayed he would do. I knew she had peace, and I had peace, too. She died about a week later. ❤️

God, I love you for being with my Mom. I know you would do this without my asking, but you have shown me it is worthwhile to ask. Thank you, Lord. Amen

1 John 3: 1-7 This scripture is so soothing to the heart. It reads like a perfect prayer. We will Praise God because of how great his love is for us , who we are as members of God’s family. We will be grateful because It tells us we can become more and more like Christ. This will be the process until we see Christ face to face. As faithful as we are , we are going to sin, it is a human flaw. What is important is that we recognize where the sinfulness is in our lives and repent confess and find forgiveness. Again in our Easter season, we have a new awakening because of Jesus’ resurrection, and w…

1 John 3: 1-7


See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!


I am a child of God. He has adopted me and loves me as his own. This is such a wonderful thought and reality. To be adopted by God. He knows my shortcomings and loves me anyway. The love he has given to me so freely is something I cherish every day. What a great gift this is.


Dearest Lord, you give you love to me freely and without question. This gift you bestow on me is accepted with great happiness and love. You sent your Son to save me and allow…

1 John 3:3 (NIV)

3 All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure.


1 John 3:6 (NIV)

6 No one who lives in him keeps on sinning. No one who continues to sin has either seen him or known him.


A person who has a hope in Jesus purifies him/herself just as Jesus is pure. This is a natural tendency to be like the person we like when we have someone who we want to be like. Jesus is pure, holy, and righteous. Anyone who wants to be like Him keeps trying to be pure, holy, and righteous by doing whatever they could do.


However, it is scary for the…
