God Built you to love

Learn More with Bible Gateway Plus.

Scripture tells us God is love (1 John 4:8), the first fruit of the Spirit is love (Galatians 5:22), and love is the greatest (1 Corinthians 13:13).

Yet, messages about love we encounter in the world around us everyday conflict with that biblical perspective.

Love Is More Than Emotion

We may think love is only about our feelings. But in doing so we fail to grasp the true nature of God's love that he desires us to imitate. Do you wonder what this true love really looks like in practice? 

Thoughtful resources included in your Bible Gateway Plus membership offer the following commentary on 1 John 3:14: 

“The distinction between children of God and children of the devil is obvious. The former love in tangible ways, while the latter do not.”  NIV Grace and Truth Study Bible

“Love receives definition in Scripture only by a listing of its attributes. It lies at the very heart of Christianity, being essential in our relationship to God and to others.”  Zondervan Illustrated Bible Dictionary

“Faith should make itself obvious in very down-to-earth ways…. A person who loves God should act like it. It’s that simple.”  NIV Student Bible
