What Is God’s Love?

December 31, 2007  •  From theTrumpet.com
Perhaps no word in the English language is used more often than the word “love.” Yet no word is more misunderstood. What is love—the kind of love God wants you to have? Man has his definition, but what does God say?

When you hear the word love, what emotion immediately comes to mind? The word no doubt evokes a variety of different feelings and emotions in every individual. But what is love? Not the love man has, or thinks he has. What is God’s love?

John 3:16 says, “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.” That is the depth of God’s love. Because of that love, God allowed His Son to be mercilessly beaten, mocked, and finally crucified in the most ignominious manner imaginable. God allowed that because of love? That’s what John 3:16 says.
