The Bible tells us “God is love” (1 John 4:8). But how can we begin to understand that truth? There are many passages in the Bible that give us God’s definition of love. One great example and well known verse Is John 3:16: “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.” God sacrificed His only Son so that we, who put our faith in His Son, will not spend eternity separated from Him. This is an amazing love, because we are the ones who choose to reject God, yet it’s God who mends the separation through His intense personal sacrifice. What’s also so great about God’s love is the fact that it’s unconditional. It’s not based on feelings or emotions. He doesn’t love us because we’re loveable or because we make Him feel good. He loves us because He is love. While many of us know from Scripture that “God is love” and that His love is unconditional, there are aspects of His love that we often don’t think about or forget. Here are five things you may have never considered about God’s love.
