What is One of God´s Most Remarkable Characteristics?


  • He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. - 1 John 4:8 KJV

 

God is love.

Is was love that moved God to create everything there is. We are the product not of a chance but of a divine lone.


The Scriptures reveal a God of love:

  • Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you. - 2 Corinthians 13:11 KJV

  • The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen. - 2 Corinthians 13:14 KJV

  • But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, - Ephesians 2:4 KJV

The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit determined to express this love, not only though Creation, but also through the extraordinary plan of redemption:

  • Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. - 1 John 3:1 KJV

  • And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. - Ephesians 3:19 KJV

  • Now I beseech you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ's sake, and for the love of the Spirit, that ye strive together with me in your prayers to God for me; - Romans 15:30 KJV

Hence, the psalmist says:

  • I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. - Psalm 139:14 KJV
