Correctly understanding love mattered to the Apostle John…it mattered immensely. There is probably no other biblical author that spoke more of it and considered its effects and implications in such detail. And such is the case in view of the present text where John famously writes, “God is love.” This affection that is so close to the very being of God is something that His children have the privilege of participating in, experiencing its life-altering effects. Pastor Daniel emphasizes some of these effects by stating, “God’s extravagant love through Christ gives us confidence that we are free from condemnation for our crimes.”
