God is LoveStuart Jones “But if anyone obeys his word, love for God is truly made complete in them. This is how we know we are in him.” 1 John 2:5 Love is grounded in accepting and following God’s directions. Jesus said the greatest command was to love God with all of our heart, soul and mind. The second greatest command was to love our neighbors as ourselves. In many ways love boils down to putting others above self. We are called to act justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly in dealing with not only God but with those around us.
