1 John 4:7-10 “Whoever is without love does not know God, for God is love.” Love is a frequent topic in Johannine writings (the Gospel, the Letters, the Book of Revelation). Our society has many definitions of “love.” God’s love is sacrificial and without reservations. He loved us first. What about our love? How do we express it? Is it only a feeling we have? Jesus tells us what love is,” If you love me you will keep my commandments.” Love is shown in the act of obedience. I know people don’t like to hear that but that’s what Jesus says.
