Jonathan Lang: 1 John 4:7-11 God Is Love

Jonathan Lang
    So you probably know what God's love is but did you know how massive it is? If you were in V.B.S you'd already know about this story but who cares. So, we learned that one Christian author said that is we filled the ocean with ink, and the sky was a scroll, and every person was a scribe by trade and every blade of grass was a quill to write the love of God would empty the ocean dry and would fill the sky. But would not be done. This is just one of the things that help you understand how insanely great God's love is. Well also one example is that God created imperfect, He didn't make us to just do nothing. He made heaven a place that we run to, to see the perfect one Jesus Christ. One bible passage that totally explains God's love is 1 John 4:7-11. It says "Dear friends let us love one another for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is love! Not that we loved God but that he loved us and sent his son as an astonishing sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us we ought to love one another."
God Is Love! 
    These verses are practically saying that God is love and that love comes from the Messiah not us. This explains that we are all sinners and it is impossible for us to get to Heaven. And then in comes God's amazing love. He sent his  one and only son for us. He could have had seven sons and didn't care about the last one. But he gave his only son because he loves the world he created. This love is astonishing and some of us can barely believe it. If ya'll want to be like Jesus look at Galatians 5:22-23 it says: "But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is now law." Guys, if you want to be lie Jesus you should follow this and the Ten Commandments. These both tell you the things that you should do if you want to be closer to Jesus. Finally, God gives us these rules because he loved his creations. And most importantly remember that: he writes (take off jacket)
