What is love? Is it romance, flowers, and chocolate? Is it happiness when you’re with someone or something that makes you feel good?
Today God reminded me of something that was written almost two thousand years ago. Perhaps people asked similar questions then. Here is the answer that John, one of Jesus’ disciples, wrote:
“This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us…” (1 John 4:10).
Love didn’t originate with man.
“…love comes from God (1 John 4:7b).
As human beings, we didn’t invent love, develop it, or define it.
“God is love… (1 John 4:16b).
God is the one who defines love, and God is the one who initiates love.
