God’s Love For Us

Bible verses about God’s love for us

Many of us have a hard time understanding the love of God. I personally have struggled with understanding His great love for me. I used to live like His love was dependent on my performance on my walk of faith, which is idolatry. My mindset was, “I have to do something to make God love me more.”

25 Encouraging Bible Verses About God's Love For Us

When I sin that sin that I struggle with or when I don’t pray or read Scripture I have to make up for it by doing something, which is a lie from Satan.

If you are a Christian I want you to understand that you are loved. His love for you is not based upon your performance.

It’s based upon the perfect merit of Jesus Christ. You don’t have to move at all you are loved. You don’t have to be big. You don’t have to be the next John MacArthur. God loves you and don’t you ever forget that.

Don’t you dare think for a second that you can love anyone more than God loves you.


Quotes about the love of God

  • “God loves you more in a moment than anyone could in a lifetime.”
  • “One who has been touched by grace will no longer look on those who stray as ‘those evil people’ or ‘those poor people who need our help.’ Nor must we search for signs of ‘loveworthiness.’ Grace teaches us that God loves because of who God is, not because of who we are.” Philip Yancey
  • “Though our feelings come and go, God’s love for us does not.” C.S. Lewis
  • “Christ is the humility of God embodied in human nature; the Eternal Love humbling itself, clothing itself in the garb of meekness and gentleness, to win and serve and save us.”  Andrew Murray 



Take a look at this verse.

Marriage shows the relationship between Christ and the church. This verse shows how much God loves you. One look upward and you have the Lord hooked. He wants to be with you and when you enter into His presence His heart beats faster.

1. Song of Solomon 4:9 “You have made my heart beat faster, my sister, my bride; You have made my heart beat faster with a single glance of your eyes, With a single strand of your necklace.”


Love comes from God 

Where does love come from? How are you able to love your mother, father, child, friends, etc. God’s love is so powerful that we are able to love others. Think about how parents see their newborn child and smile. Think about parents playing with their children and having a good time. Have you ever thought about where does that stuff come from? These things are here to be representations to show how much God loves and is joyful over His children.

2. 1 John 4:19 “We love because He first loved us.”

3. 1 John 4:16 “And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.”

4. 1 John 4:7 “Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.”


God poured out His love

True love takes action. God poured out His awesome love for us on the cross. He crushed His Son so that you may live. When you allow your joy and peace to come from the perfect merit of Christ you will understand God’s love better. It is not dependent on what you do, what you are going to do, or what you have done. God’s love is greatly shown by what He has already done for you.

5. 1 John 4:10 “This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.”

6. Romans 5:8-9 “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him!”

7. John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”


True believers have the love of God in them.

8. John 5:40-43 “yet you refuse to come to me to have life. ‘I do not accept glory from human beings, but I know you. I know that you do not have the love of God in your hearts. I have come in my Father’s name, and you do not accept me; but if someone else comes in his own name, you will accept him.”

9. Romans 5:5 “And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.”


Does God really love me?

Pray for a greater understanding of the love of God. Sometimes it is so hard to grasp His love for us especially when we look into the mirror and see all of our failures. Without knowing how much God loves you, you are going to feel so miserable.

I was praying one night and I was thinking to myself that God wants me to do more, no! The whole time that I was praying I didn’t understand that all God wanted for me was to just understand His great love for me. I don’t have to move a muscle I am loved.

10. 2 Thessalonians 3:5 “May the Lord lead your hearts into a full understanding and expression of the love of God and the patient endurance that comes from Christ.”


Nothing can separate us from the love of God.Nothing Can Separate You From God's Love

God is not mad at you. Whenever you think that you have done something to separate yourself from God’s love or it’s too late to get right with God or you need to be more to be loved of God remember that nothing can separate God’s love for you. Always remember that God’s love never ends.

11. Psalm 136:2-3 “Give thanks to the God of gods, for his steadfast love endures forever. Give thanks to the Lord of lords: His love endures forever. to him who alone does great wonders, His love endures forever.”

12. 1 Corinthians 13:8 “Love will never end. But all those gifts will come to an end—even the gift of prophecy, the gift of speaking in different kinds of languages, and the gift of knowledge.”

13. Psalm 36:7 “How precious is your unfailing love, O God! All humanity finds shelter in the shadow of your wings.”

14. Psalm 109:26 “Help me, LORD my God; save me according to your unfailing love.”

15. Romans 8:38-39 “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. No power in the sky above or in the earth below–indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.”


The love of God compels us to do His will.

It is the love of God that drives me to keep fighting and obeying Him. It is the love of God that allows me to discipline myself and it gives me a desire to keep pushing when struggling with sin. The love of God transforms us.

16. 2 Corinthians 5:14-15 “For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.”

17. Galatians 2:20 “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”

18. Ephesians 2:2-5 “in which you formerly lived according to this world’s present path, according to the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the ruler of the spirit that is now energizing the sons of disobedience, among whom all of us also formerly lived out our lives in the cravings of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath even as the rest. But God, being rich in mercy, because of his great love with which he loved us, even though we were dead in transgressions, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you are saved!”


It was the love of God that drove Jesus when everyone was yelling, “crucify Him.”

It was the love of God that drove Jesus to keep going in humiliation and pain. With every step and with every drop of blood the love of God drove Jesus to do the will of His Father.

19. John 19:1-3 “Then Pilate took Jesus and had him flogged severely. The soldiers braided a crown of thorns and put it on his head, and they clothed him in a purple robe. They came up to him again and again and said, “Hail, king of the Jews!” And they struck him repeatedly in the face.”


Discipline shows the great love that God has for His children.

Like a loving parent He makes sure that you remain on the right path. God says, “I love you and I refuse to let you live like wicked unbelievers.”

20. Hebrews 12:6 “For the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and chastises every son whom he receives.”

21. Proverbs 3:12 “because the LORD disciplines those he loves, as a father the son he delights in.”


God’s love causes us to remain calm, stand strong, and never give up.

22. 1 Corinthians 13:7 “Love never gives up on people. It never stops trusting, never loses hope, and never quits.”

23. Jude 1:21 “keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life.”

24. Zephaniah 3:17 “The LORD your God is in your midst, A victorious warrior. He will exult over you with joy, He will be quiet in His love, He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy.”

25. 1 Peter 5:6-7 “And God will exalt you in due time, if you humble yourselves under his mighty hand by casting all your cares on him because he cares for you.”


In conclusion 

I can’t brag about my love for the Lord because I am so unworthy and I fall so short of His glory. One thing that I can brag about is that God loves me greatly and He is working in me daily to help me understand it more and more. If you are a believer write it down, put it on your wall, highlight it in your Bible, put it in your mind, put it in your heart, and don’t forget that God loves you.

    This study on the Love of God and quotes were very helpful, simple and easy to understand and follow. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to look and study from this sight. Our Sunday School lesson this week is on the Love of God.
    Again, thank you

    Your message and Bible verses have inspired me to a higher level of understanding of God’s love for us all. May all Praise and glory be unto God in Jesus Christ name. May God continue to bless you and your ministry.

    Thank You.

    Thank you for reminding me again of God’s unconditional loves through your article. I’ve been there before, trying to do something to make God love me more. It is so hard and I even almost decided to leave Him. But thank God, He never left me nor forsaken me. Now I know the truth that I have been made righteous through faith in Jesus and His finished work!

    Thank you and God bless your ministry!

    As much as I wish to have agreed with what you wrote, I will just be honest and admit that so far I have not yet found a reason to be in support of the supposed God’s love for me. I won’t refute God’s love for others though.

    • Fritz Chery Jul 7, 2019, 11:46 pm

      Hey Kievin,

      Thank you for your vulnerability. I’m sorry that you are struggling to understand the love of God. I know from experience that sometimes believing the Lord’s love is a difficult task.
      However, I encourage you to not base His love or your worth on your current life situation.

      Instead I want you to focus on the cross of Christ and realize, that reveals your worth to God. He gave His holy perfect Son for you. The giving of His Son reveals His love for you. He knows you by name. He knows what you are going through. He understands and tells us to come to Him with our burdens. He will take care of you in every way.

      Matthew 11:28-30 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

      Sorry to read what you wrote. I’ve walked with Christ for over 30 years all over the world. Sadly, some see God as Santa Clause. Others stand on the outside, looking in when God is inviting them into His presence. God helps everyone, but especially those who know and love Him. Also, God, for our good, doesn’t leave us in our current state of being. By the power of His Holy Spirit, God gives us a desire to learn about him. This is the front door to enter into His Kingdom. No person has the desire to obey Him naturally, so without acknowledging how we’ve sinned against Him and want Him to be our Savior, none of His words will make sense.

  • MARICHITA FALLA AGHAZARIAN Jul 6, 2019, 11:29 am

    Thank you for helping me to have more of an understanding of God’s love for me/us. I will be sure to share this message of God’s love to those who are just starting to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. My prayers to all who work hard in this ministry are that the Lord continues to pour out blessings upon your lives, and more souls will come to Jesus. Thank you and God bless you all.

  • Rose Thompson Jul 7, 2019, 6:33 pm

    I really appreciate this article because one of my struggles is this. At times my thinking towards GOD, my attitude, thoughts, imaginations, make me feel ashamed before God. I really need God to give me the grace to know Him more and to understand Him better. I am praying for that because I am totally confused at times but it is well, thanks so much.

    • Fritz Chery Jul 8, 2019, 11:52 pm

      Hey Rose,

      John 17:3 “Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.”

      This is something we should all be praying for, to know more of Him. He paid for you sins in full so you can know Him. He wants you to be open with Him. He wants you to bring your shame to Him because on the cross Christ took upon your shame. He understands you. I encourage you to get alone with Him daily and ask Him how He feels about you. Rest your mind on the gospel and what was done for you. Get into His Word and ask Him to speak to you.

      Thank you for stopping by,

      – Fritz

    I have struggled to embrace the full love of God and I have been hesitant to let Him fully embrace me.  My father was a minister, but he focused more on meeting the needs of the church than he did in his service to the Lord.  The church became his god.  I have come to terms with it and have realized that the Lord has used this negative impact on my life to show me what love is and what love is not.  1 Corinthians 13:8 rings loud concerning this issue: love never fails.  It is not what “I” can do by His strength,  but it is what He can do through me (Philippians 4:13). 

  • Greg Dec 9, 2019, 2:04 pm

    Powerful. God is speaking through this website about His love. The replies you give to readers are as Spirit led as as the the subject.Things that spoke to me: I can never love anyone more than God loves me. Had and have that backwards. Will focus on that. And it’s not what I can do in His strength. But will I allow Him to do through me? I also struggle with very ungodly desires. Being led to take a year and study these truths about God’s love and being the righteousness of God in Christ.

  • Nono Jun 15, 2020, 11:25 am

    Everything in life is founded by the love of God. By understanding and experiencing the love of God I can live a Godly life, produce good in my life, fulfill God’s Will. God’s Love casts out fear and produces faith. Everything else will come to an end; but God’s love will never end.
    Thank- you for this lesson, it healed a lot of things in me today. It is so!
