God’s Love, By Sarah P.

God’s Love

By Sarah P.

What is real love? In today’s culture, love is a word tossed around that can mean many different things. Is it really true that love is only a feeling or emotion? The answer is no. True love, God’s love, is so much more-it’s a sacrifice. John 15:13 (NKJV) says, “Greater love has no one than this, than to lay one’s life down for his friends.” Jesus showed us God’s love for us when He came to die for people who hated Him. Can you even begin to imagine a love as great as that? How amazing, powerful, and wonderful God must be if He loves us sinners that much! 1 John 5:8 (NKJV) says, “Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.” For us to truly love God and others, we have to have Jesus in our hearts. Without God, we are so sinful that we can’t truly love others, because love is a sacrifice. When we are lost, we don’t understand true love because we are all so selfish without God. God’s true love-as a sacrifice-means that when loving others we should sacrifice our time, our energy, and our resources for the sake of others. Jesus loved us so much that He gave His life so that we could live. He tells us to love others, (John 15:17 & 1 John 4:9-12). So every time you say the word “love”, remember that true love is God’s love-and daily love others like God loves us!
