In God’s book, a lack of love is the worst situation a person could enter. In fact, God considers loveless living much worse than things we consider repugnant. Love is critical to God, a lack of it is fatal.
In Ezekiel 16.49 the Lord tells Israel their condition is fatal because of their lack of love! “Look, this was the iniquity of your sister Sodom: She and her daughter had pride, fullness of food, and abundance of idleness; neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.
What does the love of Christ look like? It is utterly transforming.
In I Thessalonians Paul notes God’s love seven times. Each is a reminder of the wonderful work His love has in us.
