Beautiful Love

"No one has seen God at any time; if we love one another, God abides in us, and His love is perfected in us."
1 John 4:12

When we are true believers in God, our love for others will be a reflection of that belief. We can't say we are believers if we don't love God and, furthermore, we can't say we are believers if we don't love others. "God is love. Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love." (1 John 4:7-8)  The love that really counts is the love we give, not the love we receive. As believers we have already received all the love we could ever need -- God's love. "In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins." (1 John 4:10). God's love for us sent Jesus to die so that we could live. "Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for us." (1 John 15-16). God is perfect love and when we let Him into our lives our eyes are opened to all the truth of who He is and how much He loves us. His perfect love fills us and flows from us to others. Beautiful.
