For God So Loved the World Verse
Perhaps the most famous Bible verse in the world is also one of the most meaningful, 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 3:16
In this passage we see just how deep God’s love is for us. He was willing to give his only son, Jesus, to be our Savior.
God is Love Bible Verse
In 1 John 4:16 holy Scripture says that God is love. God doesn’t just have love for you. He IS love.
So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.1 John 4:16
Bible Passage about God Loving Us
If you ever doubt God’s love for you, read 1 John 4. Here we are reminded that it’s not about our love for God, but instead about God loving us.
In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us.1 John 4:9-12
Scripture on Loving Others
At times, loving other people can seem like an impossible task. Whether it’s that oh-so-annoying co-worker, an ex-spouse, or someone who hurt you deeply, showing love seems impossible – let alone actually feeling loving. This is one reason why we need God’s love in us.
1 John reminds us,
We know and rely on the love God has for us.
1 John 4:17
God Disciplines Those He Loves Bible Verse
Proverbs 3:11-12 reminds us that God reproves those He loves, not as a punishment but as a Father who cares for his children.
My son, do not despise the Lord’s disciplineProverbs 3:11-12
or be weary of his reproof,
for the Lord reproves him whom he loves,
as a father the son in whom he delights.
Love Is… Bible Verses
Read about the characteristics of love in 1 Corinthians 13. This guides our understanding in what true love actually is and how God loves us totally.
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.1 Corinthians 13: 4-6
The Greatest is Love
Later in this meaningful chapter of the Bible about love, 1 Corinthians 13:13 goes on to say that faith, hope and love last forever. All are important, but the greatest is love.
So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.1 Corinthians 13:13
Love Conquers All Bible Verse
While the Bible doesn’t directly say “love conquers all”, in 1 Corinthians 13 we read about how love endures all things and never ends.
Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.1 Corinthians 13:7-8a
Nothing Can Separate Us From God’s Love Bible Verse
Romans 8:35-39 teaches us that absolutely nothing can separate us from God’s love. What an incredible reminder of our safety, protection, and comfort in the love of God our Father.
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written, ‘For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.’ No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 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.Romans 8:35-39
