10 Verses to Remind Us of God's Love
“The Bible is the story about God and His love for His own.”
— Kristin Schmucker, The Attributes of God
The narrative of Scripture is one of a God whose steadfast love rescues and redeems His people from the disastrous results of their own choices — again and again, and again. We witness this love throughout the Old Testament as we experience God’s patience, mercy, and covenant-keeping faithfulness, but it’s on the cross that we see His radical, selfless love in its fullness.
Since before time and to the end of it, God has been and will be utterly loving. It’s who He is. God is love, and His love is sufficient to meet our every longing. In other words, if we were to live our entire life without the love of a single other being, God’s love would still be enough. It is perfect and complete.
If you’ve ever wondered whether you’re loved by God, whether His love for you has run out, or whether you’re worthy of it, I invite you to rest in the truth of these ten verses illustrating God’s limitless, everlasting love for you.
