We are going to think through that phrase in verses 8 and 16: God is Love. Love is part of God’s eternal being; beyond our comprehension, but as a believer we can know Him. It is often misunderstood because our society thinks of love in a sentimental way or a therapeutic way that makes us feel better. True love wants the best and works to achieve it. God is light and holiness, not the sin and darkness which is in this world. We pray that God’s love will bear fruit in our lives.
