Certainly, our very existence is due to the Love Of GOD Toward us. His Desire to have beings like Himself to share His Life With Caused Him To Create the universe as a place of habitation for us, and then to Send His Only Begotten Son To Pay for the consequences of our sins, so that we could be Re-united with Him for eternity in Paradise. When we sinned, we separated ourselves from GOD (Who Is Holy). We therefore needed a way to back to Holiness, which required an act of atonement to bridge the gap that we created by our sins. JESUS Agreed to take the form of a man, and to give His earthly Life’s Blood to Satisfy our Heavenly FATHER’s Requirement for atonement. Rather than thousands of innocent animals having to give their life blood for this Purpose, The Sovereign GOD (The Heavenly FATHER) Chose To Send His Son instead. That, in a paragraph, is The Gospel. (The Good News)
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
Consequently, since GOD Created us in His Image, and In His Likeness, we are Predisposed to be Loving beings, also.
1 John 4:16 “And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. 17 Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. 18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. 19 We love Him because He first loved us. 20 If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen? 21 And this commandment we have from Him: that he who loves God must love his brother also.”
John 13:35 “By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”
1 John 4:7 “Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. 8 He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.”
Life Was, Is Now, and Always Will Be about Love. 🙂
