The secret revelation of "LOVE"

Everyone seems to know what love means though no one finds it easy to define. Love is personal,love is dominating,love is a spiritual experience, 1st Jn4:7-8.

Love's foundation is faith in God, it never quits, it sees as God sees and knows there is always hope, it is patient and steady no matter what the circumstances are.

Love is much more than mere words Love is ACTION! 1st Jn4:9-10 NLT says, "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".

Even God knew that you didn't just have to say you loved someone you had to show it and so "he sent" evidence and proof of his love for us #Jesus Christ.

How can we show God we love him despite the fact that we haven't seen him? It is quite easy to love someone you have seen, what about someone you haven't seen?? 1st Jn 4:20 says

"If someone says, “I love God,” but hates a fellow believer, that person is a liar; for if we don't love people we can see, how can we love God, whom we cannot see?".

Just as we can tell when someone loves us by how they treat us, so also God can tell that we love him by how we treat others.

Love is reciprocal 1st Jn4:11.

LOVE IS NOT EMOTION....Jesus Christ didn't say "when I was hungry you felt sorry for me", "when I was naked, you felt shame for me", "when I was in prison you were embarrassed for me","when I was sick, you were sympathetic toward me".

His message is very clear. Love is not what you feel. Love is what you do. WORKS, not WORDS are proof of your love.
1st John 4:7-21
