7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.
8 The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
9 By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him.
10 In this 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 4:7-10
The greatest act of love a person can ever perform for people is to tell them about God’s love for them in Jesus. God is the source of love; He is the demonstration of love, wrapped up in His righteousness, judgment, mercy and grace. From the beginning of time, God has sent out His message of love. To receive it we must be willing to listen and obey His Word.
It is also important to understand that true love—God’s love—is unchangeable; He knows exactly what we are and loves us anyway. It was God’s love which knew that mankind was incapable of obeying His law, and it was His love which promised a Redeemer, a Savior, who would save His people from their sins and empower them to live for Him.
True love is an act of the will—and anyone who receives Christ as Savior does the will of the Father in Heaven.
