We love because he first loved us (John 4:19).

This verse is a good illustration of how Christianity works. The greatest commandment for the Christian is “to love” God and neighbor, but the Christian is not called upon to summon love from within himself. Instead, he is to be compelled by the love he first received from God.

Please post your thoughts on the ways in which God has loved us.

"This is love, not that we loved God but that he loved us and sent His Son to be an atoning sacrifice for our sins."

God has loved us by:
1) Taking the initative to love us.
2) Giving his son as a sacrifice for us.

Sorry this is so late, but God has loved us by having a plan for us.

Our life is not meaningless. He has loved us by letting us be a part of His redemptive work in the world.

I'm so ready!
