To know God is to love God. Discover the reasons to embrace God’s love and how it can impact your relationship with him.

Introduction: To Know God is to Love God

To know God is to love God. Why is this important? In yesterday’s episode, we explored three reasons why God’s love is significant. Today, we will delve into the final two reasons.

Reasons to Embrace God’s Love

In 1 John 4:7-12, we are reminded that God is love. Understanding the importance of God’s love is essential for a fulfilling and meaningful relationship with him.

Love is why Jesus died

Human beings, including you and I, often fall short and disappoint God. Sin and evil cannot coexist in God’s presence. To address our sins, God, motivated by his boundless love, provided a solution – the birth, life, death, and resurrection of his only Son, Jesus Christ. By placing our trust in him, God’s love assures us that we will never bear the penalty for our wrongdoings. Through Christ’s sacrifice, we are acquitted and offered the gift of eternal life.

Love is why we receive eternal life

God’s love is eternal and unwavering. There is never a moment in our lives when God ceases to love us. For those who choose to accept his love, the book of Revelation paints a beautiful picture of God’s eternal love for us:

And he also said, “It is finished! I am the Alpha and the Omega—the Beginning and the End. To all who are thirsty I will give freely from the springs of the water of life. All who are victorious will inherit all these blessings, and I will be their God, and they will be my children.

Revelation 21:6-7 (NLT)


Understanding the importance of God’s love enables us to experience his unconditional grace and mercy. It is through his love that we find forgiveness, redemption, and the promise of eternal life. May we always remember that to know God is to love God.

Reflection Question:

How does knowing that God’s love motivated Jesus’ sacrifice and guarantees us eternal life impact your relationship with him?
