What It Means To Love - 1 John 4

1 John 4God’s Love and Ours
7 Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. 8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. 9 This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. 10 This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. 11 Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 12 No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.
13 This is how we know that we live in him and he in us: He has given us of his Spirit
What does it mean to love?  To love is to have God dwelling inside of you and making you a complete person. 

If God dwells in you, then He will make you better, because He dosn't stand for anything broken.  You can tell the difference between someone operating with God and someone operating against God.  These people always rebel, do things they shouldn't, and hate themselves.

So, now you know what it means to love.  It's being a complete person, nothing missing, lacking, or broken.

SHALOM!
