The Supernatural Love Of God
We need God’s supernatural love.
34 “So I give you now a new commandment: Love each other just as much as I have loved you.
35 For when you demonstrate the same love I have for you by loving one another, everyone will know that you’re my true followers.”
7 Those who are loved by God, let his love continually pour from you to one another, because God is love. Everyone who loves is fathered by God and experiences an intimate knowledge of him.
1Jn 4:8 The one who doesn’t love has yet to know God, for God is love.
1Jn 4:9 The light of God’s love shined within us when he sent his matchless Son into the world so that we might live through him.
1Jn 4:10 This is love: He loved us long before we loved him. It was his love, not ours. He proved it by sending his Son to be the pleasing sacrificial offering to take away our sins.
1Jn 4:11 Delightfully loved ones, if he loved us with such tremendous love, then “loving one another” should be our way of life!
1Jn 4:12 No one has ever gazed upon the fullness of God’s splendor. But if we love one another, God makes his permanent home in us, and we make our permanent home in him, and his love is brought to its full expression in us.
