The Bible has a lot to say about love. When you think about it, the entire Bible is God’s love letter to mankind. The book of 1st John actually tells us that “God is Love “(1 John 4:8 &16). He wasn’t content to ‘be’ love; He was compelled by love to rescue us from sin and death. John 3:16 in the New Living Translation explains that “… this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.”
Once we receive the love of Jesus, are born-again into the family of God, the only logical response to His great love – is to love others! For Gary and I, at this time in our lives, that means living in India. This may sound like a great sacrifice of service to God – but really it brings us such joy and satisfaction – that we can’t imagine doing anything else.
Our love for others is our grateful response to the love God first demonstrated to us. 1 John 4:19 TPT
