The Reason Why God is Love is that is His very Nature. The Bible says God IS Love. They are equivalent. When you say God, you are saying Love, and when you say Love, you are saying God.
“He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.” 1John 4:8
Just as 3 + 3 = 6, so God = Love. AND there IS NO Love like Gods!
You have not yet KNOWN LOVE until you experienced Gods Love firsthand.
“And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
We love him, because he first loved us.
If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?
And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.” 1 John 4:16-21
Why Exactly Is God Love?
There is a scripture that says, “God SO Loved the world”, lets read it and see what it says.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
The cool thing I love about God is that he just does not SAY He Loves it, He backs it up with ACTIONS!
How many times have you heard a person tell you that they Love you, but they never SHOW you that so called Love they have for you?
I as sure if you have lived a while it has happened to you, if not, keep on living .
I remember there was a woman in our church who told my wife she Loves her, but when my wife had a major surgery and in the many months of recovery not one time was she visited or called by that person who claimed she loved her!
Is that Love? I do not think so.
God not only TELLS us that He Loves us, He also SHOWS us He Loves us by His ACTIONS!
God SO LOVED the world, that what? He just keeps telling us a hundred times a day he loves us, he shows His Love by saying it over and over ad nauseam?
NO! Thank God the scripture says, God SO LOVED the world that HE GAVE HIS only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
God SHOWED us His LOVE.
How MUCH does GOD Love Us?
I have heard a preacher say when someone asked him how much does God Love us, “Jesus opened his arms as wide as he could, and said,
and he allowed sinners to nail Him to a cross, and die for OUR sins!”
THAT is LOVE!
“In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.
Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.” 1JN4:9-10
As I sometimes tell people, God is only a prayer away.
If you would like to find the Joy of Gods love in your soul, just go and pray and tell Him how sorry you are for sinning against Him.
Ask Him to forgive you of your sins for Jesus sake, and He Will Forgive you and save your soul!
