In 1 John 4:16, John declares that “God is Love” . God has intentionally created each one of us with our own unique and God-given attributes; our gender, our race, our physical appearance. When God created mankind, he said that we were Very Good. In addition, God so loved us that He “sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.” In order to remain in God’s love, we have to accept Him for who He is, and also accept ourselves just the way he created us, otherwise we will call God a liar because he made us Very Good. Moreover, in order for us to love each other as ourselves, we have to learn to love ourselves as God made us.
