God is Love. What does that mean? While the world may take that passage from first John and use it for all different kinds of purposes, we see from this letter what that Love really is. Love is Jesus, being both true God and true Man, coming to earth, being seen by people like John, and dying on the cross for the sins of the whole world. The only way that we can love is by being in His love and being in His light. Of course, the sinner does not want to remain in this light and love, but because He has given us His spirit of love, we can believe that we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. We love because He first loved us!
