God Is Love

Key Verse

“He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love” (1 John 4:8).

Text — 1 John 4:4-15


The greatest demonstration of God’s love is the gift of His only begotten Son. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). God did not send Christ as a reward to the obedient, but rather as a ransom for the disobedient. Jesus displayed His love throughout His earthly ministry. He healed the sick without requirement of gratitude. He displayed humility even though He was King of Kings. Even while on the cross, Jesus prayed for the forgiveness of the ones who placed Him there (1 John 3:16). Salvation is open to all who believe in Christ.

We need to respond to God’s love by obeying His commandments. Jesus said, if you love me, keep my commandments. (John 14:15). We must love God with all our heart, soul, and mind, and love our neighbours as ourselves. “Love is patient, and kind. It does not envy, boast, dishonor others, or self-seeking. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices in the truth.


Love does not delight in evil


Fully reciprocate God’s love.

Prayer for today

Father, help me to trust your unfailing love, in Jesus’ name.
