A collection of Bible Verses about God’s love. These scriptures will encourage and build up your faith.
I’ve been walking with the Lord for 19 years now and the one thing that still blows me away is God’s love. Trust me in these 19 years I have NOT been perfect or without fault. And each time I messed up He was there loving me.
I understand now how it says in Romans 2:4 that it is the kindness of God that leads a man to repentance. His love is a powerful force that draws you to Him and gives you such purpose and fulfillment. It’s absolutely beautiful.
You might be here because you are doing a study or preparing to preach/teach, or you could be here because you are wondering if God really does love you.
That’s why I wanted to share Bible verses on God’s love with you. That no matter why you landed here. This article would be a blessing to you in your growth and search for the Lord.
God loves you tremendously and I hope you see and feel that though these scriptures today.
