God is Love

Love of God

God is full of everlasting love for us, He said “I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you. Although, God demonstrates His own love toward us, that Christ died for us when we were yet sinners. (Jer. 31:3, Rom. 5:8).

What a sacrifice! God loves us so much, that He on His own accord gave the most precious thing he has – his Son – to draw us to Himself. (John 3:16). God expects nothing in return for his love. This love is expressed in the performance of the most humble work. Jesus demonstrated this love when He washed the disciples’ feet (Jn. 13: 1-17). He did this in order to show them that He loves them. Despite the fact that he is Our Lord, Jesus became a servant for us. He is always willing to help us, and never too busy to show His love for us.

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9). God’s love is so perfect that He will forgive and cleanse us from sin and guilt.

According to the words of the Second Letter of Paul to the Corinthians (5: 16-17), God’s love life can change so radically that we will be able to love everyone (family, friends and even enemies) in different situations.

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us. (1 John 4:7-12)
