-The dimension of love is not one of God’s personalities, God Is Love
“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?” ~ Romans 8:35
God, who created the universe, the most powerful being ever, loves you personally.
Agape love is “unconditional,” and was taught as the greatest love by the earliest Christians. This love is God’s love, that regardless of what the person does for us, or whether or not they are our equal. Jesus said to love all.
The dimension of love is not one of God’s personalities, it is God’s nature. Many Christians feel and have come to the understanding that love is one of the various dimensions of God.
But no, it’s not a dimension of him, it is who he is, He is love.
No human mind can comprehend God. We cannot provide a comprehensive account of who he is. He “dwells in unapproachable light” ( 1 Timothy 6:16) . If God is incomprehensible, then so is his love. While we may and must speak truthfully about his love, we can never fathom it, because it is divine love, as different from our love.
“The son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.
“But the father said to his servants, ‘Quick! Bring the best robe, and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger, and sandals on his feet. Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let’s have a feast and celebrate. For this son of mine was dead and is alive again, he was lost and is found.’ So they began to celebrate.”
He showed is love towards humanity, by sending us only beloved son, Jesus to die for the whole world. That’s a pure act of who he is. While we were still sinners, Jesus Christ died for us.
God’s relentless, loyal love was also revealed by the arrival of Jesus, and his affection for us drives him to give us the ultimate act of loyal love in his life, death, and resurrection.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” ~ John 3:16
“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.” ~ 1 John 4:9-10
In the Genesis story, when Adam and Eve fell into temptation, God became furious with them but yet he still showed his love towards them by clothing them. No matter how you might have offended God, He would always love you and ready to welcome you back to him.
Can a believer ever be lost? Is it possible to lose your salvation? Will God ever abandon, or turn His back on His children? The answer to these questions is a definite and resounding “No!”
No human mind can comprehend God. We cannot define God. We cannot provide a comprehensive account of who he is. He “dwells in unapproachable light” ( 1 Timothy 6:16) . If God is incomprehensible, then so is his love. While we may and must speak truthfully about his love, we can never fathom it, because it is divine love, as different from our love as his being is different from our being.
The love of God is to be lived as well as learned. This love for us, generates love in us for him and for others.
When filled with God’s love, we can do and see and understand things that we could not otherwise do or see or understand. Filled with His love, we can endure pain, quell fear, forgive freely, avoid contention, renew strength, and bless and help others in ways surprising even to us.
We must love others as God has also loved us first. The bible also said we must love our neighbors as ourselves, we must act in that way because God himself gave the commandment. Regardless the person or what they have done we must always learn to love everyone, Christians or non-Christians.
