“Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.” 1 John 4:8 NIV
I love this verse!
It’s a true reminder to us all that God isn’t this authoritarian unattainable character in the sky, but someone who really loves us all, and wants the best for us. We matter to God. The word ‘Love’ as verb – a doing word. When you love someone, you actively show them. I believe God shows us every day how much he loves us. Every time I see a sunrise or a pretty flower, I see God’s love for us! God is so creative and wonderful to us all.
The best thing God has ever done for us is to give us Jesus. He loved us so much, He sent Jesus to die on a cross for our sins. He rose again three days later. Death could not hold him down. He overcame death for us. Seriously amazing!!!
