God is Love | Full Service Video

If you had to describe God in one word, what would it be?

There are four direct “God is…” statements in the Bible; Direct and explicit declarations of God’s character. 1 John 1:5 tells us that “God is Light.” In Hebrews 12:29 we are told that God is “an all consuming fire.” In chapter 4 of the Gospel of John, Jesus tells us that “God is Spirit.” And lastly, in 1 John chapter 4, we learn that “God is love.”

These are four different aspects of God's character and his nature. In many ways, God is like a kaleidoscope. And when you turn the kaleidoscope and you look at it from different angles, you see different colors, different shapes, different forms of beauty.

What is truly incredible, though, is that while the Biblical authors over the course of human history have had true encounters with God and have experienced aspects of His character, we find the full expression of what God is like in the person of Jesus.
