Revelation 2:4; 1 John 4:8

God is love. Love is God’s nature, it’s a core aspect of God’s character and His person. Just as He is a righteous and Holy Judge, He is also a loving Father.
There can never be a perfect definition or description of love outside God. It starts with God, because He is the originator of love (1 John 4:10, 19; Romans 5:8). When you take away the God-factor from love, it becomes lust (leading to self-service, self-promotion, self-aggrandisement, etc).
The whole law and the ministry of the prophets point solely to the message of love – loving God and loving your neighbour as yourself(Matt. 22:36-40).
When you live by the golden rule (Matt. 7:12), it becomes easier to operate in love.
The fruit of the Spirit centres on the attribute of love (Gal. 5:22).
Prophecies may cease, tongues may be stilled, knowledge may pass away, but love will abide forever (1 Cor. 13:8).
Knowledge makes people arrogant (puffs up), but love builds them up (edifies) – 2 Cor. 8:1.
Love is patient, kind, long-suffering, believes all things, never self-seeking, does not delight in evil, etc.
Of the three great virtues; faith, hope and love, the greatest is love (1 Cor. 13:13).
Love is the fulfilment of the law (Romans 13:10).
Love is the platform on which faith thrives. Faith works through love (Gal. 5:6).
Love drives out fear (1 John 4:18).
When we show God’s love to people around us, we receive the life of God and abide continuously in the light (1 John 3:14; 2:10).
The real essence of love is Jesus Christ, our first love…He loves us so much that He gave His life, for the remission of our sins. Do you still love Him? Have you placed Him on the top of your priority list? Are you passionate about the expansion of His kingdom?
Love is the identity badge of the followers of Christ (John 13:34-35).
Extend the love of God to someone around you…
Reach out to as many as possible, about the love of Christ and with the message of salvation.
