That little sentence from used in 1 John 4:8 and 1 John 4:16 tells us volumes about God. He loves you. This is TRUE LOVE. It is a love beyond our understanding. Even though we all have rebelled against God, He loves us.
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” John 3:16
“He gave His only begotten Son”
Jesus, God’s only begotten Son, suffered and died to pay for our sins. A debt we could not repay. He did this so that if we repent of our sins, and put our trust in Him, we could be reconciled with God.
The New Testament refers to love over 200 times. Once we put our faith in Jesus, we are transformed. We are given a new heart. A heart that can truly love.
“By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another” John 13:35
“Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails;” “1 Corinthians 13:4-8
