love

We will only discover the true definition of love by having a relationship with God (1 Jn 4:8). His love gave us life, by taking our position on the cross (Gal. 2:20), and because we’ve received love from God, we can give love to the world. You need to know God’s love, for it to manifest in and through your life, and to overflow out of your life into others (1 Jn. 3:16). 

The depth of love we carry is measured by how you give love, as God’s unconditional love for us. If we did not see how God loved us as sinners (Rom 3:23) without us deserving it through the cross (Rom 5:8), we learn to love those around us in the same way.  God’s love for us is extravagant, irresistible, and unconditional. 

We need to troubleshoot our problems in the light of love because if we abide in God, we respond in love for God’s love justifies our lives and fills us with knowledge and wisdom. The world perceives love by something you can only receive, but we can give love because God first loved us (1 Jn. 4:19), for God loved us so much that He gave Himself unto the world (Jn. 3:16). 

God’s love motivates His compassion and mercy towards all people as we should to one another. God’s love is not something He chooses to give or show us. Love is the very essence of who God is. He doesn’t just love. He is love and when we understand His love we’ll know how to show unconditional love to the world (1 Jn 4:7-8).
