In this "God's Love" lesson, it tells us that God is love, His love is the Word.
Love is easily confused by the many ways culture defines it and creates rules and expectations for.
Our society and culture have forgotten what love is. So many of us have it wrong- look at how many people in the world, in your inner circle, who are hurting, or are lonely. Some of those people are hurting because they have stepped outside of God's plan of protection over their life, love included. When we do we put ourselves at risk of being hurt, physically or emotionally.
Some of us, even make love conditional. "If he really loved me....", "If I was loved...". None of that is how love works, none of that is how God works. He is non-conditional, and His love is the exact same.
God created us with a desire to love and be loved.
And He did so, because He wants be love for us.
God love us so much, he desires us to have a very close relationship with each of us. He wants to fill that void, that need we have for love. He wants us to make our relationship with priority.
Not only does He want to fill our void for love on His own, He wants us to show love as He does, to everyone. He tells us that as a commandment, and He explains that if we love, we are of Him, and others will see that, and they will know that we are one of His children.

+ God is Love.
God showed His love for you by sending His one and only Son to the world, so we might live through Him. He did this, not because we love Him, but because He loved us! We are to love one another, because He first loved us.
+ Love One Another.
It is commanded to us to love one another, as He loved us. Love comes from God, in all shapes and forms. If you love, you have been born again or of God, and you know God. Others will see this, and know that you are His.
+ He is Your Safe Place.
God is always willing, able and ready to fill any voids you may have or feel. He fills these voids with nothing other than love! He will fill your voids of loneliness and love, by hiding away with you in a place of refuge, a safe place. He wants to be your number one relationship- He is your safe place. He is your salvation, He is your fortress, He is your refuge; infinitely, overly present and all knowing. .
