Who Is God?

I John 4:7
Beloved let us love one another: for love is of God: and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
I John 4:8
He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
I John 4: 16
And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
Then I Corinthians Chapter 13 goes on to explain that love is the indispensable and crowning grace!!! Galatians 5:22 says, Love is a fruit of the spirit.
We claim God as perfect. It is essential that we know and teach that God is unequaled in love and power. That is why he wants us to trust in him for everything in our lives! If we really do trust him, then we love him. If we really do love him, then we trust him. If we worry, it is a sign we don't quite trust God.
If we trust God, we stand on the promises He made. If we stand on the promises he made, we are positive. If we are positive, we have love.
We put love in everything and we get excited about it. If we get excited about the greatness of God, we read the Scriptures and find for ourselves His promises and greatness.
It is very interesting to read in the Old Testament about how every time the people strayed from God, there were severe consequences; every time they trusted God there was victory!!!!
A true Christian does not go to Church, worship God, read the Bible, do good deeds, tithe, give offerings, because he has to, but much rather because he loves to!!! If one has to be demanded to do good then it is a law.
The point is that we teach the greatness and goodness of God and show it in us which is the love, and love has more power than anything else. It has the power to get deep into people's hearts and turn them to love!!!! This is the work of the Holy Spirit.
I like the way Joseph Prince states it; "the law is demanding, grace is power!!!!"
Jesus is the end of the law. We are saved through faith in grace. If this is true then we no longer have to be demanded. We have faith and receive grace and that is when we have power to overcome any and every obstacle that we are confronted with.
John 4: 23, 24
But the hour cometh and now is, when true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth, for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a spirit and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and truth.
