Love is of God. The spirit of God is the spirit of love. Whoever loves knows God. God’s nature, essence, will and works are primarily love. Believers should be imitators of Christ and love those He loves. The general love of God through Jesus Christ to the world should induce a universal love among mankind. Jesus gave His life as a demonstration of unconditional love.
The Holy Spirit gives us the power to love; he lives in our hearts and makes us more and more like Christ. If God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. It is our duty to perfect God’s love by loving ourselves as Jesus loves us. Love must not be hypocritical but voluntary and unconditional irrespective of race, colour or nationality. Let there be love shared among us.
