Many people use the phrase “God is love” without truly understanding it. In this sermon, Alistair Begg challenges notions of divine love that exclude holy judgment and wrath. Scripture explains the true nature of God’s love: it finds its origin in Him, its expression through Christ’s life, death, and resurrection, and its purpose in bringing us into relationship with Him. If we understand these qualities, our lives will overflow with love for others, visibly revealing God’s love to the loveless.
7Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.
