God Is Love

John Collins11/04/20121 John 4 tells us that God is Love.

After warning to test the spirits because false prophets would rise, John told the people to love one another.  He said that Love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.

He warned that anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.  The love of God was made manifest among us, so much that God sent his only Son into the world so that we might live through him.  This love was not just that we loved God, but that He loved us!  God sent his only Sone as a propitiation for our sins!

John says that if God loved us, we also should love one another.  No one has ever seen God, yet if we love one another, God abides in us.  When we love one another, His love is perfected in us!

As Christians, we should ask ourselves:  Does God's love abide in us?
