Ever wonder where our capacity to love actually comes from? It’s pretty clear that our ability to love is something that was given to us by God. In fact, the Bible verses about God’s love that I read tell me He is Himself the essence of love and has passed that on to us.
Granted it’s not always easy loving others. Often times we choose to love others based on how they act towards us. But that’s not how it is with God.
God’s love towards us is unconditional. That means He loves us no matter what. We can’t do anything to reject, or bypass or disown His love. He can’t help it – love is part of His nature. He loves us – all of us – equally and without hesitation.
If you doubt that, just look at these verses about God’s love found in the Bible.
