How is God like?

The difficult question

The most difficult question to answer is “how God is like?” It is very difficult to answer because no one has seen God. The following explanation is my own personal discovery. I found the most simplified answer to this question in the Holy Bible.
1 John 4:16 NASBS We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.

New revelation

This is quite shocking explanation. Everyone has heard, “love is divine” but only few people know, “God is love.” The above scripture quote highlights the most important attribute of God. God is love. God is full of love. He loves us immensely. He actually loves us more than we can love ourselves. This is unbelievable but it is so real. Who taught human beings to love each other? Have you ever thought about it? I have discovered an answer for this question in following scripture quote.
1 John 4:19 NASBS We love, because He first loved us.

The origin of love

The foremost reason we love others because God loved us. Because God has poured out his own love in our hearts that is why we can love. We humans have no sustainable source of love. God supplies us with his unfailing love. For example, my parents love me because they were taught by God. I love them back because I learnt it from them and God showed me how to love them. Please read below quote.
Romans 5:5 NASBS and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

The proof of love

God has proved his own love towards us in an amazing manner. We humans love in words however God loves manifested in action. Let me give you an example.
Romans 5:8 NASBS But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

We are loved by God

We have a great proof of God’s love when we see God sent His son to die for us on the cross. Who can sacrifice his own son for the sake of love for another human being? This kind of love is possible only with God.


God is love. Where there is love, there is God. Human understanding of love revolves around romantic love but God’s love is a highest quality of love which is far above human parameters of love. May the good Lord Jesus fill our hearts with his love so that it may overflow to others around us. Many blessings to you all. I am sending this message with lots of love.
