9 Heart Warming Things to Know About God’s Love For Us

by Sister McCook

There is no mistaking the fact that God’s love for us is infinitely powerful and endlessly compassionate.

No matter what we have done or where we find ourselves in life, God’s love is always there for us – ready to forgive and heal our wounds.

This is something that we can never fully understand or comprehend, but it is nonetheless true.

And it is this love that we must always remember and cherish, for it is the most important thing in the world.

1. How do you explain God’s love for us?

One of the most common questions people have about God is why He loves us.

After all, we are not perfect, and we often make choices that hurt ourselves and others.

So how can a perfect God love imperfect people?

The answer lies in understanding the nature of love itself.

True love is not based on what the other person does or does not do.

It is not contingent on whether we are good or bad, happy or sad.

Instead, it is a choice to see the other person with compassion and kindness, regardless of their circumstances.

And that is exactly how God loves us.

He sees us for who we are – His beloved children – and He loves us unconditionally.

No matter what we do, His love for us remains the same.

That is the wonder and mystery of God’s love.

It is also what makes it so special and so precious to us.

2. How do I know God’s love for me?

One of the most reassuring things about God’s love is that it doesn’t depend on our performance. 

Unlike the love of a human being, which is often conditional on our behavior, God’s love for us is completely unconditional. 

No matter what we do or how we behave, God will always love us. 

This is because God’s love for us is based not on what we do but on who we are- His precious children.

Another way to think about it is that God’s love for us is like the love of a parent for a child.

A parent doesn’t stop loving their child just because they make a mistake. 

In fact, they often love their child, even more, when they see them struggling. 

In the same way, God’s love for us is constant and unchanging, no matter what we do. 

This knowledge can be a great source of comfort and hope when we feel lost or alone. 

Knowing that God’s love is always with us can help us to get through anything life throws our way.

 In fact, the Bible says that “God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son” (John 3:16). 

That’s how much He loves us! 

He was willing to sacrifice His own Son to save us from our sin. 

Now that’s love!

3. How deep is the love of God for us?

The Bible tells us that “God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life” (John 3:16).

This verse gives us a glimpse into the depth of God’s love for us – but it only scratches the surface.

The reality is that we can never fully comprehend the extent of God’s love for us.

It is an unending, unconditional love that is beyond our human understanding.

But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try to wrap our minds around it.

After all, as St. Augustine said, “Love God, and do as you please.”

When we allow ourselves to be open to the love of God, we are transformed by it – and we are able to show that same love to others.

4. What are some characteristics of God’s love?

It’s often said that love is blind, but the Bible tells us that God is love.

In 1 John 4:8, we read that “God is love.” So what does that mean?

Well, first of all, it means that love is something that comes from God.

It’s not simply an emotion or a feeling; it’s an expression of His very nature.

Second, because God is love, His love is perfect.

It’s not based upon our performance or our behavior; it’s completely unconditional.

And finally, because God is love, His love is everlasting.

It never fails; it never gives up, and it never runs out.

If we want to experience true love in our lives, we need to look to the One who is love Himself.

5. Does God’s love for us grow?

One of the most comforting thoughts is that God loves us unconditionally.

His love is not based on anything we do or don’t do; it is simply a gift from Him.

But does that mean His love for us is stagnant?

Does it just stay the same, no matter what?” 

The Bible tells us that God’s love for us is indeed ever-growing.

In John 15:9, Jesus says, “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love.”

And in Ephesians 3:17-19, Paul prays that we would be “rooted and established in love,” and that we would “grasp how wide and long and high and deep” God’s love for us is.

So even though His love for us doesn’t waver, it does continue to grow deeper and stronger as we abide in Him. 

What a wonderful truth that is!

No matter what we go through in this life – the good times and the bad – we can always rest assured that God’s love for us is ever-growing.

And because of that, we can face each day with hope and courage, knowing that we are loved deeply by the One who created us.

6. What does Jesus say about God’s love?

In the Bible, Jesus speaks often of God’s love.

In John 3:16, he says “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

This verse is perhaps the most famous description of God’s love for humankind.

Jesus makes it clear that God’s love is not based on anything we have done or can do; it is simply a gift.

In Romans 5:8, he says “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

Again, we see that God’s love is not dependent on our actions or our deservingness.

Rather, it is an undeserved and unmerited love.

These verses show us that Jesus teaches us that God’s love is perfect, unconditional, and available to all.

7. How do I experience the love of God in my life?

I think the love of God is something that we experience in many different ways. 

For me, it’s often a sense of peace and comfort that comes over me when I’m going through a difficult time because I know that God is with me in all of it. 

It’s like I can feel God’s presence with me, wrapping me in His love. 

Other times, I experience the love of God through the people in my life. 

When I see acts of kindness or selflessness, I know that that is God’s love at work in the world. 

In those moments, I feel so grateful to be a part of His love story. 

I think the love of God is something that we experience in both big and small ways every day. 

It’s a reminder that no matter what happens in this world, we are never alone.

8. How do I manifest God’s love in my daily life?

One of the ways that I like to manifest God’s love in my daily life is by loving others unconditionally, just as God loves me.

This means that I try to show love and compassion to others, regardless of whether or not they deserve it.

I also try to be forgiving, even when it’s hard.

I know that forgiveness is something that God extended to me, and so I want to extend that same grace to others.

Another way that I manifest God’s love is by living a life of service.

Whenever there’s an opportunity to help someone in need, I try to take it.

Whether it’s volunteering at a local soup kitchen or simply paying for someone’s coffee at the drive-thru, I know that these acts of kindness are a reflection of God’s love.

By living out these values in my daily life, I hope to make the world a little bit brighter and help others to feel God’s love.

9. Bible verses about God’s love

The Bible is full of verses about God’s love for us.

Perhaps the best known is John 3:16, which says “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

But this verse is just a small part of the story.

The Bible tells us that God loved us even before we were born (Ephesians 1:4), and that his love for us is unending (Jeremiah 31:3).

In fact, the Bible contains over 300 verses about God’s love for us!

When we feel alone or unloved, we can turn to these verses for comfort and assurance.

Because no matter what happens in this world, we can always know that God loves us deeply and unconditionally.

and here are some other verses;

  • “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” – John 3:16
  • “But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy,” – Ephesians 2:4
  • “See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are.” – 1 John 3:1
  • “Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.'” – Matthew 19:26

Summary

It’s easy to forget how much God loves us.

We get caught up in our everyday lives and we start to think that we have to earn His love.

But the truth is that God loves us unconditionally.

He loved us even before we were born, and He will continue to love us no matter what we do.

His love is perfect and it never fails.

No matter how many times we mess up, God always forgives us and takes us back.

That’s how much He loves us.

When we feel lost and alone, we can always remember that God is with us and He loves us more than we can imagine.

That’s the beauty of His love.

It’s always there for us, no matter what.
