God is love (1 Jn 4:8). And love is others-focused (see Jn 3:16 and Phil 2:4-7). The entire plan of salvation centers on Christ leaving heaven to redeem His bride. And He intends to bring her back with Him without the least taint of sin or worldliness (2 Pet 3:14). Love is shown in action. And practically, I can’t show my neighbor love, if I don’t see them there. In this issue we look at God’s character of love, how it should transform our lives and influence the lives of those around us.
