BIBLICAL POINT OF REFERENCE:
"Beloved, let us love one another, because love is of God; everyone who loves is begotten by God and knows God. Whoever is without love does not know God, for God is love."
~1 John 4:7-8
God is Love.
Have you ever really thought about that fact? Have you ever taken a second to draw that out in your mind? Because when I think about God is love, I realize that when I love someone, it is through God’s Grace that I recognize it. I may not be capable of perfect love for another person, but there is a part of God that is still there in my love for others because He made me in His likeness and image.
God = Love
Have you ever thought about that fact that way? I’m sure I’ve heard it or seen it before, but I’m betting I didn’t stop to think about what it means.
Simply put, God and Love are the same.
Isn’t that such a wonderful sentiment? People get so intimidated by believing in a God who is all powerful, but when you describe Him as equal to that of Love, it’s not intimidating at all. It’s actually quite the opposite.
It’s remarkable. It’s everything. It’s fantastical. It’s indescribable. It’s pure, unfailing Love. How beautiful is that knowledge? I almost feel as though I don’t need to know anything else because I know that Love is always with me. It’s just so much better when I don’t have to worry about anything else...I just have to love and be loved.
Wow. That just makes me feel so much better. God is Love.
And how blessed are we to know that that Love will never change.
