LOVE. Most of us are searching for it in some aspect of our lives. And it seems to hold so much power over us. Without love, we feel empty, like there’s a gaping hole in our chest. With it, we feel happy, fulfilled, even giddy, like we’re dancing on air.
In our quest for love, what we’re really after is unconditional love. A love that doesn’t care if we’re having a bad hair day or our jeans are a little too tight. A love that stays with us through all the ups and downs. This is the love God meant for us to have all along, not just with each other but with Him.
Not long ago, I was sitting in the Sunday morning service. Our Worship Pastor and his lovely daughter were singing a duet. You’ve probably heard the song before, it goes… Your love never fails, it never gives up, it never runs out on me. As I listened to them sing these beautiful words, God whispered in my ear, “You know My love is for you too.” Honestly, that broke my heart into tiny pieces.
I spend a lot of time thinking about how I can share the love of Jesus with the people in my life. Whether they’re family, close friends or someone I met five minutes ago, I want them to know how much Jesus loves them. It’s kind of an obsession of mine. 😊
But somewhere along the way, I forgot that God’s love is for me too. Well, of course, I knew God loved me, I just set it aside temporarily and forged ahead. But God didn’t forget or set me aside. Instead, He pursued me and reminded me of His great love. The love I was always destined to have.
God’s love is unconditional. It’s the love we’ve been looking for all our lives. His love meets us exactly where we are. It reaches down to scoop us up when we’re low. And when we’re soaring high, His love sails right along with us. Because that’s who God is, a loving, caring Father we can always depend on, in good times and in bad.
Maybe you’re looking for this kind of love in your life. Today, God wants to give you the love you were always meant to have and whisper in your ear, “My love is for you too! You are mine and I love you with unconditional love!”
So, in honor of the author of love, I’ve put together a list of Bible verses about God’s Unconditional Love. I hope they will encourage your heart the same way they have mine.
God’s Love for us
The Lord has appeared of old to me, saying:
Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love;
Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.
I will betroth you to Me forever;
Yes, I will betroth you to Me
In righteousness and justice,
In lovingkindness and mercy;
I will betroth you to Me in faithfulness,
And you shall know the Lord.
God, your God, is God indeed, a God you can depend upon. He keeps his covenant of loyal love with those who love him and observe his commandments for a thousand generations.
Deuteronomy 7:9 (MSG)
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.
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his #love endures forever. 1 Chronicles 16:34 #BibleVerses Click To Tweet
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
his love endures forever.
1 Chronicles 16:34
He brought me to the banqueting house,
And his banner over me was love.
Song of Solomon 2:4
Christ’s Love for Us
As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.
I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her,
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?…
For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
As these verses attest to, God’s love is faithful, steadfast, loyal and most of all unconditional.
And God wants you to know He loves you with unconditional and unwavering love! Nothing will ever separate you from His love! Just like the song says… His love never fails, it never gives up, it never runs out on you. Are you ready to accept the priceless gift of God’s unconditional love?
This is my sincere prayer for you… Mercy, peace, and love be multiplied to you. (Jude 2) In the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Blessings and love to you!
