True Agape’ Love
Love comes from God, John says. God’s love is not like the world’s love, the ever changing, words filled with empty promises, caught up in feelings more than substance, filled with fleshly desires or actions type of love. God’s love is pure and true to the heart of God Himself, where love is unchanging and unconditional, straight from the heart of the Father who created us. His love is sacrificial, selfless and goes to the nth degree. There is no comparison to the love of God, it is called, Agape’ love.
John says that if you truly love like with Agape” love, it comes from God. “All true love has its origins in God.” If we love God’s way, we are born of God and know God. The reverse is true too. If you don’t love God, you don’t know God, and can’t love like Him and the reason is because God is love!
