God Is Love: The Truth, Promise, and Assurance

The Truth, Promise, and Assurance

He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. 1 John 4:8 NKJV

God desires for mankind to honor, worship, and love him back. He created the heavens, universe, and all creation including man to develop an intimate relationship with Him. Since the beginning of time, God has been pursuing man to commune, fellowship, and obey Him.

God is Love: The Truth

No matter how the world has evolved, the truth is that God is Love. He is the exact embodiment of love. He was, He is and always will be LOVE. The fullest expression of His love is through His Son Jesus Christ whom He sent on earth to die on the Cross to pay the penalty of all our sins.

In 1 John 4:8, the Apostle John the Beloved said: He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.

What is Love? It is a verb and a noun. When you love someone, you accept that person and love them unconditionally despite their weaknesses and flaws. You forgive them, bless them, and reach out to them. You are there in good times and in bad times. You protect, preserve, and defend them at all costs. You respect and honor them. You are kind and generous towards them. You are willing to sacrifice everything for them. Love is “seeking the best in others” as they say.

God is Love. He is the perfect demonstration of Love. There's no other being capable of loving more than him. He is the God of the Bible or the Scriptures who never fails to love us regardless of our shortcomings.

He not only gives love but He is love in the fullest sense of the word.

God is Love: The Promise

“God is Love” is not only the Truth but the Promise of God to everyone who puts their trust in Him. God's word is filled with the promises of God to Christians and otherwise. We can always take Him at His word.

God always fulfills what He has promised. The Bible documents all the promises of God that has been and will be fulfilled.

When someone gives you a promise, you are confident that he will keep his word and commitment. People may never always follow through with their promises but we can count on God to keep ALL promises expressed in Scriptures and if we are right in the center of His perfect will.

It has been a cliché or trite expression that: “Promises are made to be broken.” It is a reality but God is faithful with His words. Whatever He says, happens exactly the way it should be.

God Is Love: The Assurance

In 1 John 4:8, we are reminded that if we do not love God and others, we do not know God for God is love.

This is an assurance to those who are obedient to the command of God to love and know Him and also to love others. If we're able to love God and others, then we know Him truthfully and sincerely.

We need to express our love for God not only in words, actions but also in the way we carry ourselves before others.

Here at God Is Love Clothing, we show our faith in God through our apparel. Every piece of clothing expresses God's love for us and vice versa.

Just imagine when someone sees you clothed with one of our shirts. The words in the shirt might just be the right words he needs at that exact moment to give him a lift, inspiration or encouragement.

God is love (1 John 4:8). When we sum up God in just one word, it would be LOVE.

Clothed in His Glory, Righteousness, and Love
