Since God is love (our previous post), then we can say love is from God. In 1John 4:7 we find, “Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.” In this verse, the word of means ‘out of the source of.’ Meaning, love is from God. He is the source of genuine love.
In many situations, love is degraded and twisted and cheapened. But the fact is we can love many people and many things in a wholesome way. When we do, we can honestly and biblically say love and the ability to express genuine love is because of God because love is from God.
