God’s love—often goes unnoticed. Frequently we look for love from people to fill that missing void we thought they could fill to the brim, but in reality, it’s only God’s love that can keep us full and contented. God’s love is unconditional. It is the love of God alone that Jesus portrayed throughout his life and ministry that we need rather than the approval and applause from other people.
Knowing Jesus is knowing what real love is. Our knowledge of God’s love for us is as important as knowing our purpose here on earth. The teachings of Jesus are preserved in the Bible for us to appreciate how vast God’s love is for us. We cannot give what we do not receive. It’s not about boasting our love for Jesus, but to boast Jesus’ immense love for us that we can’t find from anyone else.
We love because he first loved us. 1 John 4:19
