God Loves You – 3 Things You Need To Know About God’s Love For You.

I added the picture above to the message I've shared with you below. :)

written by Pastor Bruce Edwards

God loves you! No matter what. Did you know there is absolutely nothing that can separate you from the love of God? Romans 8:38-39 says,

“I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

God’s unstoppable love toward you is one of the most important Biblical truths in the Bible. Your relationship with God and how you live out your life is influenced by how much you understand this truth. In just a moment I’m going to share 3 powerful things about the love of God that will help you get a better understanding of God’s love for you.

Most Misunderstand the Love of God

Most Christians think they understand the love of God, but if they did they wouldn’t feel condemned, discouraged, depressed, and defeated. It wouldn’t be a problem loving others even those who are difficult to love. Worry, fear, doubt and unbelief would not be ruling so many believers thoughts and lives. Truly understanding the love of God cures all these problems

Faith Works by Love

Until we fully understand the love of God our faith doesn’t work the way it should. Faith works by love. (Galatians 5:6) When we understand the love of God every negative feeling and emotion turns positive. God’s love has the power to bring us into the fullness of all the good things God has for us.

The Greatest is Love

Having a deep revelation of God’s love for you is the most important thing you need in your life. 1 Corinthians 13:13 says, “Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.” God’s love is the greatest. Do you understand the love of God?

When You Understand God’s Love – You Experience the Riches of God

In Ephesians 3 the apostle Paul prays for believers to fully comprehend God’s love. Why? Because in verse 19 Paul says that when you grasp God’s love you will experience the richness of all that God has for you and you will be completely filled and flooded with God Himself! Are you lacking in any area of your life? If you are, the way to turn that around is to really understand the love of God.

God Loves You

Hear me – God loves you! He loves you right where you are and exactly the way you are. I want to help you better understand the love of God. Here are 3 powerful things you need to know about God’s love.

1. God’s Love has 4 Dimensions

“May you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. (Ephesians 3:18) Notice the love of God has four dimensions. There is width, length, height, and depth to God’s love. God’s love is all encompassing.

a) How Wide is God’s love? It is wide enough to reach across the whole world to every person regardless of where they are. God’s love is wide enough to reach you.

b) How Deep is God’?. The “depth” of God’s love refers to the intensity and intimacy of His love: “ God knows every detail about you. He cares about everything – from the smallest to the greatest. God has an intense-deep love for you.

c) How High is God’s Love? God’s love is high enough to cover any mistake you ever make. “Your love, O LORD, reaches to the heavens…” Psalm 36:5 NIV God’s love reaches to where ever you are and is able to cover you .

d) How Long is God’s Love?. God’s love never runs out. It goes forever – from eternity to eternity. You can’t use up God’s love. God loves you forever.

2. God’s Love is Unconditional

“But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.” (Romans 5:8) There is nothing you can do to get God to love you any MORE than He does right now and there is nothing you can do to get God to love you any LESS than He does right now. God doesn’t love you because of your goodness. He doesn’t love you or stop loving you because of anything you do or don’t do. God loves you because He is Love. “God is love” (1 John 4:8).

Don’t allow the devil to deceive you into believing God’s love for you is based on your performance – if you are good enough, pray long enough, read the Bible more, pay tithes, go to church, etc. then God will love you and answer your prayers. This is not true, it’s a legalistic juggernaut. God’s love is unconditional.

3. God’s Love Never Fails

“Praise the Lord! He is good. God’s love never fails. Praise the God of all gods. God’s love never fails.” (Psalm 136:1-2) Regardless of the circumstances or situations in your life God’s love for you never stops. People will fail. Governments will fail. Businesses will fail, but the love of God never fails. Take comfort in the fact that God’s love for you is unfailing. No matter how much you fall short in life, God is not willing to give up on you. Trust Him – “But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God’s unfailing love for ever and ever.” (Psalm 52:8) God’s love never fails.

God’s Amazing Love

Gods love is amazing and He wants you to know how much He loves you and that He has great plans for you. God’s love is unconditional, it never fails, and all you need to do to experience it is accept it, and rejoice in it. So, stop trying to earn God’s love and just experience it!
