Scriptures to help you meditate on God’s unconditional love
Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog. Thank you so much for clicking on my link, I pray that all your heart desires are met in Jesus name. We celebrated Easter last weekend and it was a great time to meditate on the perfect love of God. The death, burial and resurrection of Jesus birthed the ministry of reconciliation and all who believe in Jesus have been called into this ministry (Read 2 Corinthians 5:12-21). We have to tell everyone (regardless of their age, race, gender, sexual orientation or religion):
- God is not angry with them
- Their past, present and future sins are forgiven
- Jesus loves them genuinely just the way they are
This message is for everyone including Christians. There are different levels to knowing God loves you. Some examples include “I know God loves me because I have never lacked anything good”, “I know God loves me because he answers my prayers”, “I know God is mindful of me even though things are not going my way right now” etc. For the revelation of God’s love to hit your mind in greater depths, you have to continually meditate on scriptures that tell you of his love.
Here are my 10 favourites inspiring scriptures about the love of God;
Romans 5:8 (TPT) But Christ proved God’s passionate love for us by dying in our place while we were still lost and ungodly!
Romans 8:38-39 (TLB) For I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from his love. Death can’t, and life can’t. The angels won’t, and all the powers of hell itself cannot keep God’s love away. Our fears for today, our worries about tomorrow, 39 or where we are—high above the sky, or in the deepest ocean—nothing will ever be able to separate us from the love of God demonstrated by our Lord Jesus Christ when he died for us.
John 15:13 There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
1 John 4:9-10 (TLB) God showed how much he loved us by sending his only Son into this wicked world to bring to us eternal life through his death. 10 In this act we see what real love is: it is not our love for God but his love for us when he sent his Son to satisfy God’s anger against our sins.
Galatians 2:20-21 (MSG) What actually took place is this: I tried keeping rules and working my head off to please God, and it didn’t work. So I quit being a “law man” so that I could be God’s man. Christ’s life showed me how, and enabled me to do it. I identified myself completely with him. Indeed, I have been crucified with Christ. My ego is no longer central. It is no longer important that I appear righteous before you or have your good opinion, and I am no longer driven to impress God. Christ lives in me. The life you see me living is not “mine,” but it is lived by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. I am not going to go back on that. Is it not clear to you that to go back to that old rule-keeping, peer-pleasing religion would be an abandonment of everything personal and free in my relationship with God? I refuse to do that, to repudiate God’s grace. If a living relationship with God could come by rule-keeping, then Christ died unnecessarily.
Ephesians 2:4-5 (GNT) But God's mercy is so abundant, and his love for us is so great, 5 that while we were spiritually dead in our disobedience he brought us to life with Christ. It is by God's grace that you have been saved.
1 John 3:1 (MSG) What marvelous love the Father has extended to us! Just look at it—we’re called children of God! That’s who we really are. But that’s also why the world doesn’t recognize us or take us seriously, because it has no idea who he is or what he’s up to.
1 John 4:16 (GNT) And we ourselves know and believe the love which God has for us. God is love, and those who live in love live in union with God and God lives in union with them.
1 John 4:17-18 (MSG) God is love. When we take up permanent residence in a life of love, we live in God and God lives in us. This way, love has the run of the house, becomes at home and mature in us, so that we’re free of worry on Judgment Day—our standing in the world is identical with Christ’s. There is no room in love for fear. Well-formed love banishes fear. Since fear is crippling, a fearful life—fear of death, fear of judgment—is one not yet fully formed in love.
John 3:16 (TPT) For this is how much God loved the world—he gave his one and only, unique Son as a gift. [a] So now everyone who believes in him[b] will never perish but experience everlasting life.
