God is the ALL in ALL
Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God
God is the beginning of all creation; all exist because of Him. He is the I am that I am which means that which He says He is, He becomes whether we have ever heard of that or not. God is not a complex mysterious being. His word reveals Him and His nature. What makes many misunderstand who God is is His nature of LOVE. The interpretation of God by us is what complicates God yet God is not complex. God is our Father, the one who breathed life into us, He is the giver of life. I am 100% confident that if we were to ask let’s say 5 different people who God is we will surely get 5 different answers about who God is. All of them are correct yet different because of the infinite dimensions of who God is. Let us look at God who is Love for the sake of this write-up.
GOD IS LOVE
1 John 4: 7 - 13 AMP
7Beloved, let us [unselfishly] [a]love and seek the best for one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves [others] is born of God and knows God [through personal experience]. 8 The one who does not love has not become acquainted with God [does not and never did know Him], for God is love. [He is the originator of love, and it is an enduring attribute of His nature.] 9 By this the love of God was displayed in us, in that God has sent His [One and] only begotten Son [the One who is truly unique, the only one of His kind] into the world so that we might live through Him. 10 In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation [that is, the atoning sacrifice, and the satisfying offering] for our sins [fulfilling God’s requirement for justice against sin and placating His wrath]. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us [in this incredible way], we also ought to love one another. 12 No one has seen God at any time. But if we love one another [with unselfish concern], God abides in us, and His love [the love that is His essence abides in us and] is completed and perfected in us.
The best way to ever describe God is to say God is Love, firstly because the word says so and secondly because we experience the personal expression of His love daily in our lives. God proved His love to us by giving us His best in His son therefore no man on earth and in heaven can ever contest the love God has for us. It is through the love of God that we are able to live lives worthy of His attention. God has given us this opportunity to express His kind of love throughout our lifetime in all creation. Remember that we were created in His image and therefore have the ability to express the God kind of love here on earth to all mankind.
