God Is Love
God is the author and originator of love. HE IS LOVE. It is because of His love that we exist and are also able to love.
There is absolutely nothing that can alter The Father's pure, authentic, unconditional love for His precious children. He will never leave or forsake us. His love cannot be earned; the debt has already been paid in full. His love is based on Who He is, not who we are or what we do or think.
Choose His love. It is a holy, perfect, perpetual gift that guarantees grace and freedom. And it can be unwrapped every day...for eternity.
For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that everyone who believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.
But God proves His love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.
For if, when we were enemies of God, we were reconciled to Him through the death of His Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through His life!
1 John 4:9
This is how God's love was revealed among us: God sent His one and only Son into the world, so that we might live through Him.
He who did not spare His own Son but gave Him up for us all, how will He not also, along with Him, freely give us all things?
neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
