1 John 4:8 – God Is Love

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

-Can you imagine how much different this universe and our lives would be if this verse of scripture said that God is hate?  We spend so much time questioning God and picking apart His methods, when we should all be thanking Him on bowed knees for not being a cruel, sadistic God.  Think about it, if God was a terrorist, or a pedophile, or a murderer- what could any of us do about it.  But for all of the things that God could have been, He is instead loving, selfless, just, empathetic, and wonderful.  I could go on but I could never do it any better than John did here; God. Is. Love.
