Love is not just a thing or an action... Love is Who God Is.
1 John 4:7-10
"Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; andevery one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. In this was manifested the love of God toward us,because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he lovedus, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins."
