1 John 4:8 Anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
God is the epitome of love - "LOVE" is who He is.
His "LOVE" is an everlasting fountain that is overflowing with love, grace and mercy. A fountain that will NEVER run dry.
God's "LOVE" reaches to the highest mountain and flows to the lowest valley. It has no boundary and is "free for all".
God's love is Agape= ἀγάπη, is a Greco-Christian term referring to "love"; the highest form of love, charity", and "the love of God for man and of man for God".
Philia-Ancient Greek: φιλία), often translated "brotherly love", is one of the four ancient Greek words for love: philia, storge, agape and eros. In Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics, philia is usually translated as "friendship" or affection.
God's love for us produces in us, "love for Him and one another", joy, strength, courage, hope, faith, a spirit of expectation, a warm, comforting feeling when we are close to Him in prayer, meditation of His Word and in worship to Him. The presence of God's love can also be felt in the midst of turmoil, trouble, fear, distress, etc.
God's "love" produces within us an undeniable assurance, a guaranteed promise of what His Word says will come to pass in our lives and on and on with the "Love" of God making itself manifested in the lives of those who love Him.
Jesus command to "LOVE" Him first and then one another is found in Matthew 22:36-40 Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the law?” 37 Jesus said to him, “ ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’[a] 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] 40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”
God's love is unlimited in supply. His "LOVE" for humanity is indescribable! it can not be measured, duplicated, weighed, fully comprehended or explained, but it is REAL!
God's "LOVE" has to be embraced. It is available to all who are willing to receive it.
God proved His "LOVE" to humanity over 2k years ago when He wrote the greatest "LOVE" story at Calvary through Christ Jesus, His Son.
John 3:16-For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.
There is no greater love story than that which has already been revealed and written. No "love" can compare to it for scripture declares these words concerning God's "LOVE" for humanity in John 15:13- Greater love has no man than this: that a man lay down his life for his friends.
Where "LOVE" is concerned, we all need to carefully examine ourselves. If we claim to "love" God and do not live and show "love", how can we say we belong to God?
Without "love" for God and one another, there is no ""LOVE"!
Liking a person ways or personality is not the same as loving them. God commands us to love them in spite of as He loved us in spite of us.
If you are a stranger to "LOVE" or an unloving person, then you are a stranger to God! 1 Corinthians 13:1-8a If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not love, I have become as sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all my goods to feed the poor, and if I give my body to be burned, and have not love, it profits me nothing.
4 Love suffers long and is kind; love envies not; love flaunts not itself and is not puffed up, 5 does not behave itself improperly, seeks not its own, is not easily provoked, thinks no evil; 6 rejoices not in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things. 8 Love never fails.
My prayer is that you cry out to God for help in teaching you how to love HIm and others, for this is what He commands from you and I.
Love begins with God and ends with God!
When we learn to love God, our "love" for others will flow to them from our "love" for God.
Still trying to figure out what true love looks like? Look no further for Calvary is the ONLY picture of where it can be found.
Yes, It was at Calvary, Golgotha's Hill, the place of the skull is where Love was placed on display like no other "Love story" in the history of the world for all to see.
Love is evidence that we belong to God for God is love and those who love Him knows how to love.
"JESUS" The greatest "LOVER" that has ever lived and will continue to ever live now and throughout eternity.
Thank you Lord for your example of "LOVE" for YOU alone is the only example of what "PURE LOVE" looks like.
There is no "LOVE" without God's Love!! None like Him!
Thank you for "loving" me Lord and teaching me how to "love" others.
The "LOVE" OF God! NO GREATER TREASURE TO BE FOUND!
VICTORY BELONGS TO JESUS!!
