GOD is Love

This is a Bible study on GOD is Love.     Click here for a printable Bible Study Guide.

Special Note:  There is not enough room in the whole world to write down the Glory of God, the Majesty of God, the Wonder of God, or the Grace of God.  No book or website in this world could contain all the fullness of God.  God is greater than anything we can imagine.  Our meager attempt with this website is to share and give people a glimpse of God's Glory, endless love and compassion which God has reveled of Himself through His word.

 


GOD is Love

God is love and the Holy Bible contains the words of God and everything that we ever need to know about God and His love.

 

The Holy Bible says God is Love...Who is God? God is love.  What is Love? God is Love.

The scriptures tell us all that God is love (1 John 4:16).    God is love and God loves us! (John 3:16).

 

The Word of God, the Holy Bible, is the greatest love story ever told.   The Bible contains the revelation of GOD Himself to mankind.  The Bible is our manual our guide to all things GOD.  Within the pages of the Holy Bible, we see the perfect plan of GOD, who He is, how and why He created all things, the purpose of mankind, and the love of GOD.

GOD and His love is the theme of the Holy Bible.

There is no greater love anywhere than the love of God.  There is no greater love than the love God has for each and everyone of us, His creation.

Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.  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.  We love him, because he first loved us.  1 John 4:10,16,19

 

God is love.  Love is at the core, the center, the heart of GOD.  We must understand God's love to fully know God.

 

What is God's love?  The word of God tells us that "Here's what love is, not that we loved God, but that He first loved us"God is love.

This Scripture says that it is not that we deserved God's love and not that God loves us because we love Him.  No, it says that God loved us first, before we loved Him.  God loved us so much that He sent to us His only begotten Son, to this earth from Heaven, to save us all from destroying ourselves, to save us from sin and death, to save us so that we all could spend eternity with Him.  God loves us so much that He created each and everyone of us, and He created us to be with Him forever.

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

We love God because He first loved us.  We are able to love God because He loved us first.  God is before all things.  The love of God came before we were created.  God is the source of love.  Love is a gift from God.  We are gifted love by God.

God's love, the love of God, is NOT the temporal, is not selfish love talked about in this world.  Don't confuse God's love with the world's love.  The world's love is self serving, selfish, self gratifying, a poor, lacking, counterfeit copy of the love of God.

How is GOD love?

 

God is love

He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.  1 John 4:8

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.  1 John 4:16

God is love.  There is not any real love without God.  Love comes from God alone.  Any fragment of real love that you may possess comes from God alone.  

We know only a fraction of what love really is, in our mortal human bodies in this wicked, sinful world. 

We will see true love, pure love one day, without any human limitations, when we see our LORD God. How wonderful and glorious that day will be!

 

For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.  Romans 14:11

Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him.   Even so, Amen. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.  Revelation 1:7-8

 

God didn't create love, God is love.  Love is the essence of God, the nature of God, the heart of God, God is love. 

Without love we cannot know God.  Without living in love, showing love, giving love, sharing love, we cannot know God.

He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.  1 John 4:8

Love is holy, love is sacred, love is pure, love is precious, love is real.  We must love on purpose, we must be committed to love.

First, we love the Lord our God with all our heart, with all our soul, and with all our might.

Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment.  Matthew 22:37-38

And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.  Mark 12:30

And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.  Luke 10:27

O love the LORD, all ye his saints: for the LORD preserveth the faithful, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer.  Psalm 31:23

The LORD preserveth all them that love him: but all the wicked will he destroy.  Psalm 145:20

I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.  Proverbs 8:17

 

Second, we love one another.  When we love God with all our heart and commit ourselves to obey His word and follow Christ, we can love one another, as God commands.

And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.  Matthew 22:39

And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.  Mark 12:31

But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.  Matthew 5:44-45

Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:  1 Peter 1:22

Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.  Matthew 19:19

But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.  Luke 6:35

A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.  By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.  John 13:34-35

This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.  John 15:12

These things I command you, that ye love one another.  John 15:17

And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.  1 John 4:21

ALL people who do NOT love, do NOT know God. 

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?  1 John 4:20

It is a fact that all people do NOT love God and all people do NOT love one another.  Those without love are lost people without God.

In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.  1 John 3:10

The will of God is that ALL people obtain salvation through love and truth.

 

Oh, How I love Jesus!  If we love God the Father, we love His Son.  The word of God reads that no one can love God the Father, without loving His Son, Jesus Christ, God the Son.

Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.  By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.  1 John 5:1-2

For more information see - LOVE

Do NOT be deceived:  The Scriptures never state that love is God.  There are many false doctrines in the world today that pervert and twist the true Word of God and falsely claim that love is God.  Nothing is before God.  God is love, but love is NOT God, as nothing is God except God.  For some this may not be a big thing, but whenever someone changes the words of God around it is serious to God and to their eternal destiny.  The Scriptures tell us that damnation, eternal separation from God, exists for anyone who adds to or subtracts from the Holy Word of God (Revelation 22:18-19), and God promises us all that every jot and tittle, every letter and word He gave will be fulfilled (Matthew 5:18).


How did God show His love for us?

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.  1 John 4:9-10

God showed us His great love, through the greatest sacrifice known to man, the crucifixion of Christ Jesus, the only begotten Son of God, for the propitiation for our sins, to wash us clean from sin, to make us worthy to enter the Kingdom of Heaven, this is love, this is how God showed His love for us, by His greatest gift of love, the love sacrifice of His own Son for us, so that we could receive eternal life.

And we know all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.  Romans 8:28

But if any man love God, the same is known of him.  1 Corinthians 8:3

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?  1 John 4:20

By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.  1 John 5:2

But there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in Him; and one LORD Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by Him.  1 Corinthians 8:6

GOD says in His word that everyone that He creates is loved by Him.

No one is unlovable.

We love him, because he first loved us.  1 John 4:19

The love God has for us began before we were born.  Before God created us in our mother's womb - He loved us - He loved us first - before we were and before any one else loved us He loved us.

No one loves us more than God.  God loves us so much that He gave Himself for us so that we could live with Him forever.

God gave you His word to you, so that you could know and learn about Him - Personalize John 3:16 for yourself - "For God so loved me, that He gave His only begotten Son for me, that if I believe in Him I should not perish, but I would have everlasting life".

The love that God has for us cannot be measured.  The love that God has for us is limitless.  The love of God is the gift of God.

God loves each person that He creates with an unspeakable, unimaginable, immeasurable, unlimited love.

You are lovable, you are lovable by the one who created you and the who knows all about love, the one who is love - God.

You can always rest assured that God loves you, no matter what, God loves you.

You are lovable!
