God’s Simple Plan Of Salvation
GOD IS LOVE
One of our greatest needs as human beings is to be loved. We all need love. We need to know that we are important to somebody, that somebody truly cares about us, wants us, and accepts us unconditionally. When we doubt that we are loved, we may develop unacceptable behavior patterns to compensate for it.
To know Him is to find release from the crippling effects of feeling unloved. Twice the Apostle John stated that God is love. “Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.” (1 John 4:8).
“And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.” (1 John 4:16).
