God Shows His Love to Us

God showed His love to us in the beginning of time by inviting us on the journey with Him.

“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” ~Genesis 1:1 WEB

God showed His love to us by sending His Son, Jesus.

“For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life.” ~John 3:16 AMPC

“By this God’s love was revealed in us, that God has sent His one and only Son into the world that we might live through Him.” ~1 John 4:9 WEB

“But God shows and clearly proves His [own] love for us by the fact that while we were still sinners, Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One) died for us.” ~Romans 5:8 AMPC

“God has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was granted us in Christ Jesus from all eternity, but now has been revealed by the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immorality to light through the gospel.” ~2 Timothy 1:9-10 NASB

God shows His love through us by inviting us to share His love with others.

“It was God [personally present] in Christ, reconciling and restoring the world to favor with Himself, not counting and holding against [men] their trespasses [but cancelling them], and committing to us the message of reconciliation (of the restoration to favor).” ~2 Corinthians 5:19 AMPC

God shows His love to us in amazing ways! Let us respond to His love today.

  1. Sometimes it is hard to see,
    and harder yet to feel
    that there’s Someone loving me,
    and that His love is real.
    It hurts too much today to talk,
    it hurts too much to move,
    but I’m called to up and walk,
    and by this God will prove
    that His love is overflowing
    as I breathe and live,
    for I learn, and in this knowing
    find the love I give
    is coming, not from only me,
    but from God’s gift of unity.

    1. Beautifully stated, Andrew. God’s love is the very essence all around us, yet we don’t always comprehend it. May He help us comprehend His love in greater measure.
