God is love quotes

God’s love is unconditional and unchanging. There is nothing that we can do to make God love us more or less. God’s love is not dependent on us. 1 John 4 teaches us that God is love. This is telling us that God loves us because of who He is. It is in God’s nature to love. We can’t earn His love.

There is nothing that God saw in us that made Him love us. His love is freely given. This should give us so much comfort. His love is not like our love. Our love for the most part is conditional. We struggle to have unconditional love when loving someone becomes challenging.

You and I may love someone until they stop loving us back or stop pleasing us. However, God’s love for sinful people is remarkable, relentless, hard to fathom, and never-ending. God loves us so much that He sent His Perfect Son to die on the cross for our sins, so that we could have eternal life, know Him, and enjoy Him.

11. “God is unchanging in His love. He loves you. He has a plan for your life. Don’t let the newspaper headlines frighten you. God is still sovereign; He’s still on the throne.” Billy Graham

12. “God’s unfailing love for us is an objective fact affirmed over and over in the Scriptures. It is true whether we believe it or not.

13, “The ultimate mystery of our lives may be God’s unconditional love for us.

14. “I can’t brag about my love for God, because I fail Him daily, but I can brag about His love for me because it never fails.”

God’s love proven on the cross

We never have to worry about if we’re loved by God or not. He has proven His love for us on the cross of Jesus Christ. Take a moment to think about this amazing truth. The Father sent His only Son, His sinless Son, His perfect Son, and His obedient Son to the cross. There was nothing that Jesus wouldn’t do for His Father and there was nothing His Father wouldn’t do for Him.

Please take a moment to ponder their immense love for one another. A love that would drive Jesus to the cross to glorify His Father. However, not only that, a love that would drive Jesus to the cross to atone for your sins. We’ve all sinned against God. We can hear this statement and not understand the gravity of it. We’ve all sinned against the sovereign holy Creator of the universe. A Creator who demands holiness and perfection because He is holy and perfect.

We deserve God’s wrath. Justice is required. Why you ask? Because He is holy and just. Justice is an attribute of God. Sin is a crime against God and because of who the offense is against, it deserves a severe punishment. It doesn’t matter if we attempt to do good things to try to escape the punishment. Doing good deeds does not eradicate the sin that stands between you and God. Only Christ eradicates sin. Only God in flesh can live the perfect life that we could not.

While hell was staring you in the face, Jesus took your place. Christ has removed your shackles and He put His self in the position where you should be. I love the words of John Piper. “Jesus jumped in front of the wrath of God and adverted it, so that the smile of God rests upon you today in Christ rather than anger.” Jesus willingly gave His life for sinners such as ourselves. He died, He was buried, and He resurrected, defeating sin and death.

Believe this Good News. Believe and trust in the perfect work of Christ on your behalf. Believe your sins have been taken away by the blood of Christ. Now, you can enjoy Christ and grow in intimacy with Him. Now, there is nothing blocking you from God. Christians are given eternal life and because of the work of Jesus, they have escaped hell. Jesus gave His life for you to prove the Father’s love for you.

17. “God saved you for Himself; God saved you by Himself; God saved you from Himself.” Paul Washer

18. “The shape of true love isn’t a diamond. It’s a cross.”

20. “By the cross we know the gravity of sin and the greatness of God’s love toward us.” John Chrysostom

21. “Love is when a man wipes your tears, even after you left Him hanging on the cross for your sins.”

22. “Do you not realize that the love the Father bestowed on the perfect Christ He now bestows on you?”

25. “God loves you more in a moment than anyone could in a lifetime.”

26. “God loves each of us as if there were only one of us” – Augustine

27. “God’s love is so extravagant and so inexplicable that He loved us before we were us.”

28. “God’s love is bigger than all the love of men combined. A man can leave anytime when he feels tired, but god never gets tired of loving us.”

29. “God proved His love on the Cross. When Christ hung, and bled, and died, it was God saying to the world, ‘I love you.” Billy Graham

30. “Satan loves to take what is beautiful and ruin it. God loves to take what’s ruined and make it beautiful.”

31. “You can look anywhere and everywhere, but you will never find love that is purer and encompassing of everything that God’s love.”

32. “Love is not a religion. Love is a person. Love is Jesus.”

Bible verses about the love of God

I love the quote, “The Bible is God’s love letter to us.” Scripture tells us about God’s love, but even more so, we notice what He has done to demonstrate His deep and astounding love for us. Throughout the Old and New Testament, we see demonstrations and glimpses of God’s love. If we look closely, we can see the gospel of Jesus Christ in every Old Testament passage.

In the prophetical story of Hosea and Gomer, Hosea purchased his unfaithful bride. He paid an expensive price for a woman who was already his. Read the story of Hosea and Gomer. Don’t you see the gospel? God, who already owns us, bought us with a high price. Similar to Hosea, Christ went into the most treacherous places to find His bride. When He found us, we were filthy, unfaithful, we came with baggage, and we were unworthy of love. However, Jesus took us, bought us, washed us, and clothed us in His righteousness.

Christ poured out love and grace and He treated us as precious. He gave us the opposite of what we deserve. We have been rescued and set free by the blood of Christ. If we look closely, we will see that this gospel message of redeeming grace, is preached throughout the Bible! Take a moment to look for Christ when you read the Scriptures. There is so much rich truths in the Bible that we can easily gloss over, if we rush through our personal Bible study.

33. 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.”

38. John 3:16 “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.”

46. Ephesians 3:18 “May have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.”

God’s love in trials

We must always remember that in this life, we will go through trials. Hard times are inevitable. Bad things do happen. However, that does not mean that God is mad at you or that He’s punishing you. Beware in trials, because Satan will try to feed you these lies. James 1:2 says, “Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials.”

Find joy in every trial. This can be difficult at times because we’re always looking towards self, when we should be looking towards God. Let’s pray for more of His supernatural love and comfort during the trials we face.

Let’s pray for wisdom and guidance. Let’s pray for God’s encouragement. Let’s remember that God is always working in us and in our situation. Trials are an opportunity to see God’s power on display and sense His presence. There is beauty in every trial if we look to Him and rest in Him.

52. “God’s love does not keep us from trials, but sees us through them.”

53. “Your trial is temporary, but God’s love is permanent.”

54. “If God’s love for his children is to be measured by our health, wealth, and comfort in this life, God hated the apostle Paul.” John Piper

55. “At times, God’s discipline is light; at other times it is severe. Yet, it is always administered w/ love & w/ our greatest good in mind.” Paul Washer

56. “Beloved, God has never failed to act but in goodness and love. When all means fail-his love prevails. Hold fast to your faith. Stand fast in his Word. There is no other hope in this world.” David Wilkerson

57. “Snuggle in God’s arms. When you are hurting, when you feel lonely, left out. Let him cradle you, comfort you, reassure you of His all-sufficient power and love.”

58. “There is no pit so deep, that God’s love is not deeper still.” Corrie Ten Boom

59. “One of the greatest evidences of God’s love to those that love him is, to send them afflictions, with grace to bear them.” John Wesley

Struggling to believe the love of God

If you’re anything like me, you’ve struggled to believe that God loves you the way that He says He does. The reason for this is that, we often tend to find joy in our performance on our walk with Christ, instead of finding joy in the finished work of Christ. God doesn’t need anything from you. He just desires you.

Look at all the intimate moments of love that we have in this world. Love between husband and wife. Love between parents and children. Love between friends. This is only possible because of His love for you. God’s love is infinitely greater than any type of earthly love that we may see or experience. God’s love is the only reason why love is possible.

When you’re struggling with sin, don’t think that He doesn’t love you. You don’t have to put yourself in a spiritual time-out or try to read the Bible a little more for Him to love you. No, run to Him, cling to Him, pray for help and wisdom, and believe His love for you. Don’t believe the lies of the enemy. You are so loved! You can’t surprise God. He knew that you were going to be messy at times. However, He still deeply loves you. He has proven His love for you on the cross of Jesus Christ.

I encourage you to preach the gospel to yourself daily and believe what the Bible says about your identity in Christ. You are loved, valuable, cherished, and redeemed.

God’s great love for us, instead compels us to live a life pleasing to Him.

Experiencing the love of God

There is so much of God’s Spirit that believers have yet to experience. There is so much of His love and His presence that we are missing out on. I encourage you to seek His face daily. Set a time to pray every day and do it! Get alone with Him and don’t just pray for things, pray for more of Him. God wants to give you more of Himself.

John Piper said, “God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him.” Pray for more of His love. Pray for a greater sense of Christ. Pray for more intimacy throughout the day. Don’t neglect God in prayer. There is so much of Him that we are missing out on. Start seeking Him more today!
