God is Love

I don’t how many of you remember the song “God is Love” from your childhood.

you know that one that goes…

Praise Him praise Him all ye little children God is love God is love

Well I remember it. And I was reading today I came across the verse from 1 Corinthians 13:4-7.

it’s that one that goes:

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

And  I remembered hearing one time, maybe at a sermon or youth group meeting, that you can substitute the word Love for God and still make the verse true.

God is patient, God is kind. God does not envy, God does not boast, God is not proud.  God does not dishonor others, God is not self-seeking, God is not easily angered, God keeps no record of wrongs. God does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  God always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Now I wont discuss the other aspects of God, like how he jealous for our love, and how he does have wrath and maybe boasts about us to the angels.

I just wanted to say that God = Love. I love love. I love God too.

I wanted to share.

You’re welcome!
