Love is from God, why & how?

Love is from God, why & how?

“Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.” 1 John 4:7-8

Well, first let’s see how the love of God was shown to us -1 John 4:9 says: “This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.”

Why is this act an act of Love?

We didn’t love Him ( maybe only its blessings ), he loved us when we were still sinners. His Love was so big that He sent His only Son to die for our sins - read the Gospels for more on this. He didn’t do this because we worshipped Him, or listened or obeyed Him, He loved us because He is Love.
