"God is love" (1 John 4:8) is a favorite Bible verse about love. 1 John 4:16b is a similar verse also containing the words "God is love."
"Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.
God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him."
(1 John 4:8 and 4:16b)
Henri Nouwen writes: “Maybe someone will say to you, ‘you have to forgive yourself.’ But that isn’t possible. What is possible is to open your hands without fear, so that the One who loves you can blow your sins away.”
