This is Love
After looking at God's character while learning the catechism, the next scripture looks at God who is love (1 John 4:8-9). God loves us with an everlasting and eternal love (2 Chron 20:21). It is love that is better than life itself (Psalm 63:3).

He shows this love in so many ways. While we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8) through whom we can be reconciled to God (Romans 5:10-11). He gave up his only son so that whoever believes in him could be saved (John 3:16). In our earthly lives, God gives us new life through his love and mercy for us (Ephesians 2:4-5). The Holy Spirit has been given to us as an outpouring of love into our hearts (Romans 5:5). As believers kept in the love of God, we wait for that mercy of the Lord Jesus Christ that will bring eternal life (Jude 20-21).

In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
1 John 4:10

"Sophia". I love reading your comments and reflections on not only the catechism but Christian life. Your post on burnout was really interesting - and challenging.
