For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”King James Version (KJV)

1. God So Love the World

Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends. (John 15:13  ) 
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.) (Romans 5:8 )

The Love of God is a beautiful and has been preached for centuries in Christian churches around the world. Love of god in christianity 

I pray that You see God through Your eyes. Help you to live each moment as though it were my last. Let me not waste any time complaining about what you do not have, nor fretting about whatcannot take away. Instead, use your time wisely, so that I might accomplish something for God

2. Everlasting Love (Jeremiah 31:3)

The prophet Jeremiah reminds us of God's everlasting love, a love that endures through all circumstances and seasons. It is a love that has no end and knows no bounds. God's love for us is constant and unchanging, drawing us close to Him, regardless of our circumstances or shortcomings.

3. Immeasurable Love (Ephesians 3:16-17)

In Ephesians 3:16-17, Paul prays that we may comprehend the width, length, height, and depth of God's love, which surpasses all knowledge. God's love is immeasurable; it cannot be contained or quantified by human standards. It extends far beyond what our minds can comprehend, reaching into the depths of our souls.

4. Incomprehensible Love (Ephesians 3:19)

Paul continues in Ephesians 3:19, expressing his desire for us to know the love of Christ, which surpasses knowledge. God's love is beyond human comprehension; it is a divine mystery that goes beyond our understanding. We cannot fully grasp the depths of God's love, but we can experience it through faith and surrender to His will.

5. Great Love (John 15:12)

Jesus instructs His disciples to love one another as He has loved them. His love is great, unselfish, and sacrificial. Jesus demonstrated this love by laying down His life for us on the cross. As recipients of His great love, we are called to love others with the same selflessness and devotion.

In Romans 5:5-6, Paul reminds us that God's love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit. This love was demonstrated in Christ's death for us while we were still sinners. It is a love that knows no limits, willing to make the ultimate sacrifice to redeem and reconcile us to Himself.

6. Share Love of God it with others. We Ought To Love I John 3:16

“Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.”

God so loved, He gave. The least we can do is return that love I John 4:19 “We love him, because he first loved us.”

You see, God's lovedid not stoop with a mere expression. God loved , but He did more than that – He gave . Youcan't really love without giving of self. And because God loved, He gave. He gave not all thecattle on a thousand hills, not all the gold and silver and precious stones of the world, nothouses and lands, and not stocks and bonds. He gave something worth much, much more toHim than all of these – He gave His Son (1)

7. Let the Love of God  it inspire you.

Manifestation of God’s love. In creation  Genesis 1:26-27
“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness…So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”

I pray that this message inspires you to seek help when you need it. May the love of God be with you always. 

Place of Love. Love is essential and lLove produces action. Gal. 5:6 – faith works by love. 1 John 5:3 – love of God:

1. Love is required in a good marriage
2. Love has always been at the root of what God requires from us
3. Love of God is what binds us together
4. Others see Jesus in us, because we love

8. Love of God and Salvation

Our salvation is not dependent onwhat we do, but on what Jesus has already done for us.Being born again hinges on our belief that Jesus is theSon of God who has come into our world to pay the pricefor sin. No matter who we are or what we have done,Jesus tells us all that we must be born of water and theSpirit. Good people and bad people must be born again.Religious people and lost people must be born again. All people must be born again

Ask Him To Help You Live A Life That Is Worth Living.
We live in an age where we are bombarded by messages telling us what we should do, how we should act, and what we should think. Many people feel lost because they don't know who they are or what they believe. They spend their lives trying to please other people instead of pleasing You.


We serve a God whose love surpasses all human understanding. His love is everlasting, immeasurable, incomprehensible, and great. It was demonstrated through the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ on the cross, securing our salvation and reconciliation with God.

May we be overwhelmed by the magnitude of God's love for us and respond by loving Him with all our hearts, souls, and minds. Let us also love one another as Christ loved us, reflecting His love in our relationships and interactions with others.
