We love Him, because He first loved us.1 John 4:19
Over the past few weeks, I’ve been thinking about the love my Heavenly Father has and how His love is so amazing that, what word can there be for that amazing love? Is there a word on this earth that can contain it? Perhaps that word is Jesus. His love is unmatched; the Almighty God! “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. Revelation 1:8” And… He sent his only begotten Son to bring us back home. It is truly amazing! That’s the kind of love that I want. To be like Jesus, HE IS thee example in all things.
FOR GOD IS LOVE
Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God. And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. We love him, because he first loved us. If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also. 1 John 4:7-21.
And in Matthew 22:37-39, Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
