God Wants Us To Know that He Is Love
Case 3: The Goodness of God
Who is the Source of all true love?
God is the Source of all true love, and without Him, there would be no love. 1 John 4:8 – He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
This Truth Makes
Someone who does not habitually love God or other people is someone who has never met God! Jesus said that love is the greatest commandment. Paul said that if someone does not have love, he is nothing. (1 Corinthians 13:2-3) He also said that nothing anyone does has any value if it is done without love.
If you do not really love, it proves that you do not really know God. If you do not have a relationship with God through faith in Christ, then you are still lost in your sins. (John 17:3) When we know God, we will be able to grow in love toward God and others! Why? Because God is the Source of all love; and, as we come to know Him more and more, He changes us to love as He loves.
