The Origin of Love
Real love didn’t begin on earth. 1 John 4:7–11 reveals the origin of love and what we are supposed to do with it. “Dear friends, let us love one another, because love is from God, and everyone who loves has been fathered by God and knows God. In this is love: not that we have loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, if God so loved us, then we also ought to love one another.” (1 John 4:7–11) Real love comes as a gift from God, and He expects us to pass it on.
