6-17-14 Love Is From God (a Sonnet)


If we love another we know God,

For God is love in essence and in form,

And when we love, we take the path Christ trod,

Beginning in His Image to conform.

Beloved brother, how to know God’s will

Is simply to put love in all you do.

You’re made for this, a mission to fulfill:

To be the light of love your whole life through.

Such joy there is to be your Father’s child!

He loves you more than you will ever know.

Just love to live and live to love so mild,

Becoming more like Jesus as you grow.


Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God;

and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.

(1 John 4:7) KJV
