Day 21 - Want Somebody to Love Secret - Daily Inspirational Verses from Real Life

1 John 4:7-8 - (NIV): "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."

In the words of Jefferson Airplane's "Don't You Want Somebody To Love", Don't you want somebody to Love? But this song, though awesome as music, is not a good source of happiness.  There are not answers here. 

In 1 John 4 we are being told that we should love one another, as if loving on another is difficult and not a day to day occurrence.  

Think back to the last time you were angry at someone.  

Got that picture in your mind. 


That is what John is talking about.  It shouldn't be there, and the Love that should be there comes from only one place.  It comes from God.  So if you lost your cool, as we all do, it means we lost our love, and we need to be in contact with God more often.

So, if you have already been saved, and can say you were born of God, (if you do not know if you are, click the link at the bottom of this message) then you have walked away some how.  Fortunately, in the same verse, we are told the solution.  All love comes from God.  

Want some, walk back to God, or run back, or just stop for a second and hear and see the Love of God. See the bottom for some easy ways to walk back toward God.

Now, if you don't feel as though you have enough love in your life, the answer is just as easy.  You need more God in your life.

How to do that is just as easy.  Here are some clues from the bible.

1) Go to Church.
2) Hang out with others who are born of God,
3) Talk about the stuff in your life that bothers you with fellow Christians.
4) Read the bible daily. (If you run out of time, then you can always just subscribe to this daily verse of inspiration, and use it as a daily devotional.)
5) Smile.  God Loves you.
6) Finally, never forget, Smile, God Loves You.
