If They Knew God They Would Love Him

God is love (I John 4:8, 16).

We love Him, because He first loved us (I John 4:19).

The reason the world does not love God is that they do not know Him. If they knew the Father in truth, as He really is, they would love Him. It is as simple as that.

Most of what the world thinks that they know about God is untrue. World religions have done a great disservice to mankind. They have misrepresented Him. Relatively few in the world really know God. If they knew Him, and of His great undying, unchanging, unconditional love for them, they would willingly and eagerly love Him in return. To know Him is to love Him. To not love Him is purely to be ignorant of Him and Who He really is.

Do not be discouraged by the situation though; for there will come a day when all will come to know God in the reality of His goodness and love. This will not be the result of any human effort whatsoever. It will be the product of God’s revelation of Himself.

And they shall not teach every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, “Know the Lord”: for all shall know Me, from the least to the greatest (Hebrews 8:11).
