Love... Is God
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
Surely God is love: every sunrise, moonbeam, mountain, valley, river, ocean, flower, creature, fruit tree, wheat field, small child, soft heart, sweet face, bright smile, faith step, true word, kind act, hero, prayer, comfort and mercy declares God's glorious love.
But consider some challenges to the simple word, love:
1. Hateful Christians don't show God's love: when they condemn the world.
2. Honest skeptics don't understand God's love: when they see suffering.
3. New age faiths twist God's love: when they rewrite love's definition.
Therefore, ambassadors for Christ must clarify and exemplify what love is... and what love is not
Because Satan, 'The prince of the power of the air' (Ephesians 2:2), has waged a massive propaganda campaign of confusion. One of his most effective cons is spinning love upside down and backwards...
So that L-O-V-E can E-V-O-L-v-e into a dance with the devil.
Because truthfully, when we boil everything down, what represents God better than love?
Therefore, we love.
