In a world full of selfishness, violence and self-motivated agendas it can sometimes feel as if the love that humanity once had has become almost non-existent. The main thing we have to remember is that while the world is fallen and full of sin we still have our Heavenly Father watching over us, who is full of love for us.
In fact it tells us in the Word of God that God does not only show love but He is love. The Bible has many instances in which the love that God has for us is revealed to us. It is important for us to grasp these bible verses and hold onto them so that we have something to stand on when satan the deceiver comes around to discourage us.
Here are 5 powerful bible verses about God's love for us:
John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life."
1 John 4:9-10 "God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through Him. This is real love -- not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.
Romans 8:38 "And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God's love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow - not even the powers of hell can separate us from God's love."
1 Peter 3:18 "Christ suffered for our sins once for all time. He never sinned, but he died for sinners to bring you safely home to God. He suffered physical death, but He was raised to life in the Spirit."
Ephesians 3:18 "And may you have the power to understand, as all God's people should, how wide, how long, how high and how deep His love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God."
God’s love for us is so great that we cannot even comprehend it. He was willing to send His own Son to die a horrible death for our sins. God’s love is an incredible thing to ponder on and should be done daily because it gives us a better idea of who He really is and it gives us a more positive approach to the day that we are about to begin where love is not so existent
I pray that you will be encouraged and strengthened by the above verses that depict God’s love for us. Just remember that we are called to love like this as well. We were created in the image of God and we must show this strength of love not only to our friends and family but to our enemies as well.
