No matter where you are or what you’re going through, praise the Lord. The love and sacrifice of Christ give a more profound meaning to your life. And in hard times, your praise is even more sacred – for it comes directly from the grace and mercy of God.
Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
1 John 4:7-10
