What is Real Love? Being Loved by God

“See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!

1 John 3:1 (NIV)
1 John 3:1 (ESV)

Do you know what real love is? True love means that you have an unwavering, unbreakable, and unparalleled fondness and devotion for someone. True love includes respect, admiration, never hurting anyone, and never subjecting anyone to humiliation or abuse. True love involves communication, affection, trust, appreciation, and mutual respect.

The Bible lists the following characteristics for love:

  • Love is Patient
  • Love is Kind
  • It does not Envy
  • It does not Boast
  • It is not Proud
  • It is not Rude
  • It is not Self-Seeking
  • It is not easily Angered
  • It keeps no record of Wrongs
  • Love does not Delight in Evil
  • Love Rejoices with the Truth

How can we know real true love? Real true Love comes from God, the Father. His love is unlike any love which humans possess. His love is always unconditional and always lasts for an eternity. This kind of Love us known as Agape Love. True Agape Love is a willed Love. It is the highest form of love, charity, and it is the love God has for mankind, and the love man has for God.

Agape ❤️ Love
John 3:16

Agape Love is selfless and sacrificial. It is mentioned over 200 times in the Bible. God’s love is perfect, unconditional agape love which He has for you, for me, and for the whole world 🌎.

Agape Love is a choice. It doesn’t come out of attraction or obligation. It is the kind of love that Jesus Christ displayed on the cross when He took our place and took upon himself the sun of the World, including yours and mine.


“God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.”

1 John 4:16

17 “Therefore My Father lloves Me, mbecause I lay down My life that I may takeit again. 18 No one takes it from Me, but I layit down of Myself. I nhave power to lay itdown, and I have power to take it again. oThis command I have received from MyFather.”

John 10:17-18 (NKJV)

Let the love of God dwell in you. Let Him demonstrate His Unconditional, Unending, selfless sacrificial love to you. God loves you! You are Loved!

God bless. Thank you! Remember I appreciate y’all.
