Our understanding of God’s love is so raw since it is shaped by the culture we were born in and raised in, the books that we read, the music that we listen to, and the movies that we watch. What we understand as love is only what we are capable of ourselves doing to others. That is an utterly inadequate definition of love. Jesus Christ is the embodiment of what love really is. God is love, and His love is actualized and demonstrated in the person of Jesus Christ on the Cross in Calvary. He is no less than the incarnate Son of God, preexisted with the Father, not made but begotten, the fullness of Deity lives in bodily form. Without diminishing his divinity, he voluntarily took a human form to deliver humanity from the bondage of sin by offering himself as the ultimate sacrifice. For the penalty of sin is death. Jesus paid the price with his own blood even when we were still sinners. And that is love.
