TO JOHN: YOUR QUESTIONS ABOUT LOVE: IS LOVE AN EMOTION? AND IS LOVE A NOUN OR A VERB? THIS IS A VERY GOOD TOPIC FOR TODAY, ON THIS VALENTINES DAY LOVE IS THE MAIN FOCUS, BUT CAN WE JUST GET LOVE ANYWHERE? OR FROM ANYONE? AND SHOULD WE GIVE OUR LOVE TO EVERYONE? THERE ARE MANY QUESTIONS TO ANSWER HERE. TODAY LET US GO TO THE MASTER AND AT HIS TABLE TO FIND THESE OUT! LOVE IS ALL OF THESE AND MUCH MORE, BUT TRUE LOVE BEGINS WITH JESUS. HE IS THE ULTIMATE SOURCE FOR LOVE. WE SEE THAT JESUS LOVES US WITH ALL OF HIS EMOTION AND WE SEE ALL OF HIS EMOTIONS OF LOVE POURED OUT FOR US AT THE CROSS. IT IS HIS ACTIONS OF LOVE THAT SAVES US AND IT IS HIS LOVE THAT BECAME THE OBJECT OF SACRIFICE. SO YES, LOVE IS ALL OF THESE AND MORE!
“Beloved, let us love one another; for love is of God; and everyone that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. For no man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us. 1John 4:7-12
“And now abideth faith, hope, and love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” 1Corinthians 13:13
“And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God. Ephesians 3:17-19
