How Great God’s Love

We love because he first loved us.”—I John 4:19 (ESV)

 

 

WHY WE LOVE

In the many religions of this world, we find that so many seek to appease their gods. We see, too, many people who think that if they do one thing correctly, then God will do something for them.

This is not how God shows himself to us. God shows us pure love. Love that dies brutally on a cross and rises triumphantly from the grave.

What does that motivate us to do? We now love because of how He loved us. We don’t love to try and earn favor with God, but because God sought us out of the darkness. Our lives now flow from the cross and tomb to the people God places around us. We love because He loves.
