In this post, we will be sharing with you some uplifting bible verses about love KJV, that will fill your heart with warmth and compassion. There are many kinds of love in this world, but none of them can be compared to the enduring Love that God has shown towards us. He loves us so much that despite our rebelliousness and sins, He still gave up His most precious treasure – His Son, in order to redeem us back to Him.
It’s hard to imagine what it must have been like to give up something so dear. Yet, God did so willingly in order for us to once again enter His loving presence. It is through this finished work of Jesus – the laying down of His life for us, that we can now call God our Father.
This is the kind of love that is of the highest form, the kind of love that never stops, and selflessly puts others first. It doesn’t force itself on others by saying, “Look at me!” But instead, quietly goes about offering itself to all who would draw from it. It never keeps score of how much it has given, or how much is owed towards it. It always trusts, never looks back, but steps up and presses on to the end.
This is the Love of God, for God is Love, and when we choose to dwell in Him, He shall be able to love others through us.
I believe words are feeble when used to describe the Love of God. But my hope is that through the quotations on love below, you can but have a glimpse of how deep and how wide God’s Love for you really is.
