How do you love God?
by allowing Him to love you!

      We love Him because He first loved us.
      1 John 4:19

God loved us even before we knew Him,
… and He still loves us despite our deeds or failures.
As Scripture tells us …

      “love will cover a multitude of sins.”
      1 Peter 4:8

But, unless we open our lives to God’s love
… so that He can love us,
God cannot shower us with His goodness
… because we are not where He can love us.

      And we have known and believed the love
      that God has for us. God is love, and
      he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.
      1 John 4:16

We have to open ourselves, our lives to God,
so that He can love us,
and enable us to love others they way He does.

      Love has been perfected among us in this:
      that we may have boldness in the day of judgment;
      because as He is, so are we in this world.
      …
      We love Him because He first loved us.
      …
      And this commandment we have from Him:
      that he who loves God must love his brother also.
      1 John 4:17,19,21
