What Comes From God

What Comes From God May 20, 2016

Rachel Held Evans wrote on Facebook, and gave me permission to quote it:

I confess. Sometimes I need reminding it doesn’t go like this: “Dear friends, let us be right, for being right comes from God. Everyone who is right has been born of God and knows God. Whoever is wrong does not know God because God is right…No one has ever seen God, but if we are right, God lives in us and his rightness is made complete in us.”

[For the record, it actually goes like this: “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… No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. – I John 4
