What an amazing statement, a statement that could only ever be said of God. God is love, essential to everything that God is, expressed in everything that God does, says, chooses and desires is love.
God is the definition of what is loving, faithful, pure and active in love; God is love. It’s not just that He loves; He is the sum total definition expression of what is loving. What an amazing statement!
I could say you are a lover, but I could never say of you, “You are love.” But that’s who God is. He is the source of love. He is love. If you would cease to love, you would not cease to be human. You would not be a nice human being. You cannot separate love from God and God from love because God is love! (1 John 4:7-9)
