1 John 4:9-12  ”Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is a child of God and knows God. But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love. God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins. Dear friends, since God loved us that much, we surely ought to love each other. No one has ever seen God. But if we love each other, God lives in us, and his love is brought to full expression in us.“ (NLT)

God leads with love. His initiative to redeem us and to reconcile us to himself is motivated and animated by his perfect love. There is more to this word LOVE than we recognize or understand. There is more to LOVE than we can yet appreciate. God’s love initiates, pursues, captures, redeems, renews, and fully expresses itself in its perfection and limitlessness. 

This Bible Project video is helpful for understanding God’s love.

Real love seeks, finds, and sacrifices. 

Real love gives with overflowing generosity.

Real love is immediately available.

I will live with an increasing expression of real love. 

Our Father, you fully express your love for us. Live through us to fully express your love for others. Amen.
