God is love.
“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.” I John 4:7 NKJV
Love isn’t a character trait of God, it is the essence of who God is. If He is the same God, today, yesterday, and forever, then love can’t change. By rational consequence, we can imply that love cannot be reduced to our emotional faculties..
Love can’t be reduced to how you feel. Because God doesn’t change.
Love is intentional.
“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.””
John 13:34-35 NKJV
- He commands us to love
- He defines His disciples by their obedience to love.
Love is proactive not reactive. It is intentional not accidental. Listen in…
