When we hear or read the word ‘Love’, the most common thing we can think of is a relationship (as in lovers) or any kind of things connected to a romantic relationship. But what is the REAL meaning of love? Let’s use the Interrogative pronouns – Who and What.
- Who is love?
“…God is love.” -1 John 4:8
…..Love is God, not our partners.
- What is love?
“This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.” -1 John 4:10
…..It’s not about us loving God but it’s all about Him loving us and that he sent His Son to die on the cross for our sins.
We sometimes complicate love but really it’s so simple and powerful. Love is beautiful because God is beautiful.
