What Is Godly Love?
As we share in God’s love for people, we grow in our understanding of God’s love for us. By practicing Jesus’ genuine love for others, we more deeply experience God’s love for us, and our hearts are put at rest. Those believers living actively and “abiding” as God’s children, are loving as children of God—they share deeply in the love of the Father, with Jesus, by the Holy Spirit. This is real life—the life that yields assurance, answered prayer and faith-filled abiding with God. This is our life of loving as children of God.
