Answer—The Love of God

From a human perspective, we often define love as an attraction one has toward another person. We say, “I am in love with that person.” Because we are attracted to that person. And love surely does attract us to the one we love, but attraction is not always rooted in love. Love is something altogether different and much deeper than attraction, though love often does express itself in such a manner. To understand love in a better way, we must understand what God’s Word says about God’s love.

 

God defines His love, which is brought to us through the person of Jesus Christ, as different from all other sources that surround it like a lily in the valley or an apple tree amongst the wild tree of the forest.  The lily is surrounded by weeds and grass and rises above and brings a smile to the valley, one lily makes the entire valley worth looking at. The apple tree bears fruit unlike all the other trees of the forest, and in the same manner the love of God is above all other love.
