The Apostle John wrote in 1 John 4:8, “…God is love”. Love is not just something God does, love is something God is. It is an essential core of his nature.
The greatest expression of God’s love was the cross. John 3:16, “For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son that anyone who believes in him will not perish but have everlasting life”.
Our response to God’s love is to love him back and to love people.
“One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: ‘Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?’ Jesus replied: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.” Matthew 22:35-40
