God is Love

 

God is love. His love is a selfless love that embraces the entire world of sinful mankind. The chief expression of that love was His sending of His only Son Jesus to die for sinners. In addition, God has a special family love for those who through Jesus are reconciled to Him.

Scriptural Context:

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.”

John 15:12 -15 “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.You are my friends if you do what I command you.No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you.”

Romans 5:8 “But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 8:38-39 “For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
