1 John 4:7-12

1 John 4:7-12
Contemporary English Version (CEV)

 God has loved you with an everlasting love.  Nothing will ever separate you from it, and God will love you eternally.  The love of God is fiercer than you can imagine, and it will shelter with you in the boldest storms of your life.  It celebrates with you on the mountaintops and mourns with you in the valleys.  God loves you, not because you are worthy, but because he is worthy and merciful and gracious and kind.
  So, therefore, how will you live?
  Will you hoard that love, keeping it to yourself?
  Or will you share it, inviting others to know, treasure and share that same love, to be transformed by unconditional love that heals old wounds and changes eternal destinies?  Will you be a conduit of God's love?
