God is.....

The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love.

1 John 4:8

Isn’t it far more than interesting that God chooses to define Himself as “love”?

Perhaps since it is He who chooses to define Himself that way we should allow Him to define the word “love”.

Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails… I Corinthians 13:4-8

Have you ever thought of your God this way? Patient, kind, not seeking His own, rejoicing in truth, bearing all things, and, last but certainly not least, His love never fails.

Do you really know Him?

Allow the truth of who He really is to soak deeply into your spirit.

Allow your spirit to commune with the God who loves.

Finally, please take a few moments to express your feelings toward this God who is love!

Perhaps Psalm 136 might be useful as you being the express your feeling to the One whose "lovingkindness is everlasting".
