Describing God

But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love. (1 John 4:8 NLT)

What words would you use to describe God?  Would you say He is compassionate, merciful, patient, forgiving, awesome, and majestic?  The Bible shares with us many characteristics of God’s character. But the one word that describes all of these characteristics is LOVE.  God is love.  He loves us with selfless love.  A love that is so strong nothing we can do will reduce the love that He has for us.

Long ago the LORD said to Israel: “I have loved you, My people, with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to Myself. (Jeremiah 31:3 NLT)
