God’s life-changing word overflows with his promises of real love, forgiveness, salvation, peace, hope, and joy for everyone who trusts in his Son, Jesus.
These eight passages describe God’s unconditional love for all people—richly demonstrated through Christ’s sacrificial death on the cross.
“Lovingly, you will lead the people you have saved.
Powerfully, you will guide them to your holy dwelling.”
God loved the world this way: He gave his only Son so that everyone who believes in him will not die but will have eternal life.
I am in them, and you are in me. So they are completely united. In this way the world knows that you have sent me and that you have loved them in the same way you have loved me.
We’re not ashamed to have this confidence, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us…. Christ died for us while we were still sinners. This demonstrates God’s love for us.
Romans 5:5, 8
I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love which Christ Jesus our Lord shows us.
But God is rich in mercy because of his great love for us.
We understand what love is when we realize that Christ gave his life for us. That means we must give our lives for other believers.
1 John 3:16
God has shown us his love by sending his only Son into the world so that we could have life through him. This is love: not that we have loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the payment for our sins.
1 John 4:9-10
