Need to read some Bible verses about God's love? There are times (especially on those really rough days) that we all just need to hear “God loves you.”
The wonderful news is that we don't have to doubt God's love or wonder if he does love us. The Bible shows over and over through inspirational Bible verses on love (including Bible verses about how God's love never fails) about how precious we are to Him.
So friend, I encourage you to grab a cup of coffee and enjoy these beautiful Bible verses on God's love. See for yourself how much God loves you!
Do You Ever Wonder “Does God Love Me?”
Life is far from easy, and sometimes we wonder why things work out (or don't work out) the way we think they should. This can cause us question our life's purpose, and to even ask, “Does God love me?”
While the question “why do bad things happen to good people” is not easily summed up in a few short words, we can rest assured that–no matter what– God loves us completely and fully. There are several Bible verses that assure us of this fact (we'll look at the list of Bible verses about God's love in a minute).
We may not understand the reasons why he does or does not allow certain situations in our lives, but we can confidently state that God, first, will use trials to produce incredible joy and fruit in us that wouldn't be possible without the trial; and that second, the trial is meant to cause us to get closer to God and trust in His love even more.
My husband and I have gone through our share of difficulties and we can testify that joy is possible through hard times because of the fact that we've made this truth–God loves us–as the foundation for our life.
Awesome Truths About How Much God Loves You
God's love letter to you–the Bible–is a story of how God lovingly pursues flawed, imperfect people like you and me so that we can know our greatest life purpose and live to be our fullest, most vibrant selves.
One of my favorite Bible verses about God's love (Ephesians 3:19) beautifully describes it this way: “May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.”
We have the wonderful pleasure of spending our lives getting to know Him and uncovering that greatest treasure–the never-ending riches of His love! Isn't that amazing?
Saint Augustine summed it up like this: “To fall in love with God is the greatest romance; to seek him the greatest adventure; to find him, the greatest human achievement.” I would agree!
Jesus is calling us to that full, rich life (John 10:10) which is only found in knowing God and have an authentic relationship with Him.
God's love cannot be earned (many Bible verses about love are clear that God's love is a free gift); nor can God's love be taken away (Romans 8:35-39 assures us of this fact).
God's love fills us up and completes us like nothing else in this world. In fact, Blaise Pascal famously stated that we were all born with a hole in our heart that can only be filled by God, and it is only in understanding how much God loves us that we can have ultimate fulfillment, peace and joy.
Bible Verses About How God's Love Never Fails
1 Corinthians 13 contains some of the most famous Bible verses about love.
However, while 1 Corinthians 13 doesn't expressly state that God loves us in this way, we can know that God's love “never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance” because we read in 1 John 4:7-8 that God himself is both the author and embodiment of love.
God is the author of love and He wants to share His unending, never-giving-up love with you. Isn't that great news?!

It's so important to not just read Bible verses about God's love but to let these scriptures about love TRANSFORM our thoughts.
If you're serious about bringing true, godly love into your life, here's what I recommend:
1. Read Bible verses about love and apply them to your life in practical ways–one verse at a time.
What really allows biblical love to grow in our hearts? When we can process each Bible verse on love one at a time–meditating on them and practically applying that truth to our lives.

2. Figure out why you struggle with feeling loved and get your big questions about love answered.
What keeps so many of us from understanding God's love for us?
I believe it's because we're bogged down by all kinds of questions, such as:
- Is there a loving God? If so, what’s it like to be loved by Him?
- Where is God’s love during hard times?
- How can God’s love bring me everyday joy and peace?
- How can I best experience God’s love?
- How does God’s love free me to reach my fullest potential?
- How do I know that God always loves me?
We may not realize we have these questions, but we often have them nonetheless buried inside other frustrations.
For example, you may think, “I don't feel loved or appreciated by my spouse.”
Ok, so you may feel unloved.
But can I challenge you to consider that you're seeking to find unconditional love in the wrong place (from another human)?
The deeper need you have is to discover the gift of God's perfect, never-ending love. You may have heard about God's love all your life.
But if you've gone through some hard times that have caused you to question His love for you, you may be unable to really experience His love.
That's why you must get answers to the deeper questions like, “Where is God’s love during hard times?” and “How do I know that God always loves me?”
And that's exactly what the “I Am Loved” Bible Study helps you address.
This amazing, one-of-a-kind love Bible study helps you discover the answers to these common questions about love by looking at Bible verses and sharing biblical stories of those who also struggled with these issues.
Each week on Days 1 to 5 of the study, you'll use the 5Rs Bible Study Method (an easy Bible study method that takes under 10 minutes a day) to apply that day's Bible verse about love to your life.
The 5Rs is the first step of the Spiritual Growth Rhythm Worksheets that you'll complete each day.
This method teaches you to Read, Rewrite, Restate, Relate and Respond to each verse (you can learn more about the 5Rs here, or in the video below).
Why not dig deeper into God’s word and really discover how to apply these love Bible verses to your life?
