Initial, Perfect Love

The phrase, “I love you” is powerful. With it, we can communicate someone’s worth and significance. It can be used to express romantic feelings towards a significant other. And, there is nothing quite like the bond between a parent and a child. This is a selfless type of love, as the parent desires the best for his or her children. “I love you” might also be a form of greeting among family members and friends.

We also use the word “love” to express our interests and desires. “I love music, sports, etc.” “I love to be with people.” “I love Tex Mex food.” We mean many different things when we use the word love. Our understanding of love is always filtered through human minds and relationships. Scripture gives us the clearest picture of love.

This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.
1 John 4:9-12

While we can never fully grasp the love of God in our finite minds, it is perfectly shown in Jesus’ sacrifice. Because of His love, Jesus gives us eternal life in Him! Jesus loved us first, even though we are unworthy. Because of Jesus’ love, we can show unconditional love to others.

Love in Christ,
