What Does 1 John 4:16 Mean?

The words of 1 John 4:16 are very clear: God is Love. When we live in love, we live in God, and God lives in us. While these words are straighforward, they may be difficult to practice. For example, what are the things in your life that prevent you from living in love? Perhaps we need to address those things fully in order to fully realize the meaning of these words.
