1 JOHN 4:8
"Whoever does not love, does not know God, because God is love."
Have you ever asked anyone the definition of love?
How many different answers did you get?
"Love is this and that."
Has anyone ever told you the definition of love is right there everyday?!
If God is love, then you will feel it in the breeze running through your hair, the flowers dancing as you walk by, and the sunshine kissing you with warmth.
Wherever God is, there is bound to be love nearby, simply because GOD IS LOVE!
Also, if Jesus Christ lives in us and we are full of Him, then we are full of love!
We are to spread this overflowing love with the broken, lost, and weak.
It's important to note that the first part of the verse says, whoever does not love, does not know God. OUCH!
Love your neighbor as yourself!
We don't want to be like the ones in the first part of the verse.
Instead, it should be, "Whoever loves, loves God, because God is love."
We want to be one of the ones who can boldly say, "I know God, because I can love!"
After all, we love because HE loved us first.
