God Is Love

Scripture: 1 John 4:7-12 More than being a God who loves, our God IS love. He cannot do anything that isn’t loving, even if we don’t understand how love fits in. The ultimate expression of his love is not that he sacrificed someone for our sins, but he sacrificed His Only Begotten Son for our sins. In response, we are called to love one another. This is the first of four lessons related to the fact that our God is love.

God’s Love for Us

God’s Love for Us Scripture: Romans 5:6-11 God is love. He chose to love Israel even though they were “the least of all peoples.” In the same way, he chose to love us even though we were weak, ungodly, sinful and God’s enemies. Every thing Jesus did, from miracles to teachings to rebukes, and ultimately going to the cross, was done because he loves us. The entire gospel story is built on the fact of God’s love for people who don’t deserve to be loved that much.

God’s Love for Israel

Scripture: Deuteronomy 7:6-11 The story of Israel is the story of God’s love. God chose flawed people, such as Abraham, to create His special people. God chose weak, ungodly and rebellious Israel to be His special treasure on earth. Even the commandments of God, against which Israel so often rebelled, were the gift of a loving God. They were God’s people because of His love, and they should obey His commands for the same reason.
