God is L-O-V-E!
I John 4:8-10, “God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.”
LIMITLESS. God’s love is limitless. God’s love is unconditional. God’s love is indiscriminate. God loves all people, everywhere. There is nothing you can do to make God love you. He already does. He loves you in spite of you. He loves you no matter what you have done. He loves you no matter who you have become. You don’t have to be good. You don’t have to be perfect. You don’t have to do anything. He loves you just because. Absolute. His love is genuine, and complete. People may love you for your possessions or your beauty. God loves you unconditionally.
Romans 8:35-39 New International Version (NIV)
“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36 As it is written:
“For your sake we face death all day long;
we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”[a]
37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[b] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
OVERABUNDANT. God’s love is deep, bottomless, wide. It’s deeper and wider than any ocean. The waves of God’s love cover all kinds of sin. The deep ocean of God’s love washes all sins away. His love is boundless. His love is overabundant. His love does not run out.
Psalm 36:5-7, “Your love, Lord, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies. Your righteousness is like the highest mountains, your justice like the great deep. You, Lord, preserve both people and animals. How priceless is your unfailing love, O God! People take refuge in the shadow of your wings.”
VERIFIABLE. You are and I are proof God loves us. The incarnation of Jesus is the verifiable truth of God’s love. Jesus left the splendor of heaven to come die for us. Romans 5:8, “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
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.”
You are the evidence of God’s love. Look at your life. Had it not been of God’s love, you and I would not be here today. Had God not loved us, where would we be? Look at His miraculous provisions. Consider the love He has shown you through salvation? God loves you. Your existence, and your salvation are verifiable truths of God’s love for humanity.
ETERNAL. God’s love is everlasting. God loves has no beginning nor ending. God’s love is forever. God loved us, God loves us, God will always love us. Hallelujah! He wants us to be with Him forever. He will be our God. People may have turned on you. People used to love you, but not anymore. God is not like people. His love is eternal.
Psalm 136:1-3, “Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. His love endures forever. Give thanks to the God of gods. His love endures forever. Give thanks to the Lord of lords: His love endures forever.
God’s love is Limitless, Overabundant, Verifiable, and Eternal!
Do you have His love?
