The Love Of God

God is the God of love. Jesus is the Love of God.

On the last week of Advent, we focus on love. The Bible has a lot to say about that. It was God’s love for mankind that brought us a Christmas Day in the first place. God loves His creation.

The ancients had over a dozen words describing all different kinds of love. Brotherly love, erotic love, marital love, the love of a good friend, the love for a good book, and many others kinds of love are all accounted for in Greek vocabulary. We, on the other hand, only have one word to describe all of them. When I say I love something, I could mean virtually anything at all. I could be talking about kind thoughts towards someone or a great sandwich or an unhealthy obsession for someone that consumes everything in its path. “Love”can mean anything between those extremes.
