What is Love?

We “love” the concept of love. We enjoy the warm fuzzies that come with the emotion. However, when we look at what God says love really is – wow, it takes more work to love. John 15:12 tells us to love each other the way God loves us. God loves us despite our sin (Romans 5:8). The book of Romans tells us how unlovable we really are.

So when it comes to loving one another, we shouldn’t choose to love based on how lovable someone seems to be. We need to seek to love as God loves.

How do we learn how God loves? Read God’s Word (the Bible) and seek Him in prayer.
