What is LOVE.?

“Whoever is without love does not know God, for God is love. In this way the love of God was revealed to us: God sent his only Son into the world so that we might have life through him. In this is love: not that we have loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as expiation for our sins.” -1 John 4:8-10

If you type ‘what is love?’ in a search engine, you are likely going to get more than 10 million results. Yet, all those articles combined barely scratch the surface of this wonderfully complicated four-letter word. We have an intrinsic need to love and be loved; yet, it is never as easy at it seems.

In an article wrote  by Harriet Sun she says: “There are a few things love isn’t. Love isn’t a feeling. Although real love is often accompanied by strong feelings, love does not equate with the sense of floating on clouds. Unlike the type of love that movies, television, and songs portray, people in love don’t always feel ooey gooey around each other.”

If someone asked you to define love, how would you answer them?  Different people may have different views on what love really is.  People often use love as a way to express their emotion, something they like and became emotionally attached to. Or could love be that sensational feeling you’ve lingered for all your life? But love goes much deeper than your feelings and everyone needs it. Unfortunately the kind of love most typically found is a conditional one that will change or fade away.  There is only one love that will never change and that is the love from our almighty God.  Don’t turn away from God’s love or you will find yourself living in a world of disappointments.

God loves you from the inside out.  GOD is Love! God loves us  and not because we are worthy, but because He chose to. God loves us so much, He even sacrificed His only son on the cross to save us from sin.  If anyone fails to notice this unconditional love, it will it be the greatest regret anyone could ever have.

I know with my whole being that God loves me and that He will never take His love away from me or disappoint me and He is always with me.

Know He loves YOU. He will never take His love away from YOU or disappoint YOU. He is always with YOU!
