The kind of love that God asks of us is formed in us as we obey his commandments. The basis of this obedience is faith, that is, to know Christ as the Son of God. But, how does a person come to know God? The knowledge of God is a gift of God. God not only reveals himself through the events of the life of Jesus, but also enables us to recognise him through the Holy Spirit in us. So, faith is the gift of God. Those who believe Christ have eternal life, a life that is not only unending, but also a life that is the best sort of life available to us now.
