The Best Verses About Love Of God You Should Read

Bible Verses about The Love of God and their meaning

In the Jewish Holy books, there is a special mention of the love of God. The Bible verses about God’s never failing motivate you to stay strong and move ahead. Take a look at some of these amazing Bible verses and grant yourself the will to love your enemies, foreigners and neighbors.

“But let man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and cry mightily unto God: yea, let them turn every one from his evil way, and from the violence that is in their hands.”

When God saw what they did, how they turned from their evil way, God relented of the disaster that he had said he would do to them, and he did not do it.”

The Ninevites have often been considered to be one of the worst people. Jonah was either terrified of them or was hopeless about the Ninevites that when God summoned him, he refused to go the same way and instead went to another place. But in this Bible verse, Jonah proclaims the word of God’s repentance to them. Their response was in the path of Faith and God has further kept every judgment.

The Ninevites in the Old Testament regarded God as a merciless creature, but it is not so. The story is portrayed in that. Due to such words and thoughts of the Ninevites, they deserved the punishment. 

However, Jonah being well-aware of God’s character believed that God would condemn the Ninevites if they repented to God. Jonah’s lack of mercy in the story is very much opposed to the actual overwhelming mercy of God. But it is not so. There are several Bible verses about God’s unconditional love.

“For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the LORD that hath mercy on thee.”

Through this verse of Isaiah, we see a clear depiction of the unconditional love of God towards mankind. The love is permanent as the mountains and hills, God says. This was one of the best encouragement for people in the past days. Even today, this is one of the best encouragement.

 In Jewish holy books, we can see this undying love of God. Even when we are surrounded by chaos, we can expect to be pulled out of the situation. The wrath fell upon the city, but it was God who pulled everyone out of the situation. Out of all the things in the world, God’s love that stays permanent for everyone.

“And refused to obey, neither were mindful of thy wonders that thou didst among them; but hardened their necks, and in their rebellion appointed a captain to return to their bondage: but thou art a God ready to pardon, gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and forsookest them not.”

You are a God ready to forgive, gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love, and did not forsake them. The Bible brings to our notice judgement after judgement, which is very shocking. The theme of revenge from the Bible comes as a shock to people who have always viewed God as merciful. How would anyone view a merciful God to be so wrathful?

The thoughts of Prophets and the Biblical verses are a clear indication of how merciful God is and how he has stood by his people for a long time.

God’s people always stood against them and rebelled against him from time to time, bug God never left them. He stood for them and the Bible brings to our notice, the centuries of rebellion. It is Nehemiah who brings to our notice the right path. God may be late in his judgement, but he is never unfair or angry.

His delayed judgement is a result of all the sins that His people did to him. Despite being rebelled, God showed his mercy towards his people. Similarly, God’s delayed judgment in cases doesn’t point towards his unfair anger but towards his calmness to show anger.

One of the greatest parts of the Testament is that God is extremely good and kind that he bestowed a fair judgement on his people. He was kind enough to show his love towards them. So, it shows that despite all the wrongs being done to Him by His people, God has always been working towards doing the right and bringing his People on the right path.

1. But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called [thee] by thy name; thou [art] mine. 2. When thou passest through the waters, I [will be] with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. 3. For I [am] the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt [for] thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee.

God reminds the people of Israel how He took care of them when they crossed the Red Sea in Egypt. Even when they lived among the Egyptians who were many of them, God didn’t leave Israel. God promises the people of Israel to take care of them in the future as He has done in the past. The verses describe God’s love for the people of Israel.

In the verse, Isaiah brings to our notice something that we have always known, the mercy of God. God is always with us to correct us from our wrongdoings and bring us to the right path because he loves us. Thus, we can conclude that God, being a father figure, always keeps a watch on his children who when moving on the wrong path, needs to be brought back on the right one.

9. The heart [is] deceitful above all [things], and desperately wicked: who can know it? 10. I the LORD search the heart, [I] try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, [and] according to the fruit of his doings.

This passage from Jeremiah’s speech may not immediately reflect the nature of God. He is a Kind figure but this Biblical verse does not directly point to that. Instead, his speech refers to us being ‘sick’ and our hearts being ‘deceitful’. Rather than focusing on the words, we should take a thorough look at the meaning implied behind it.

Humankind has always been so, with a deceitful heart and sickness of it. We tend to get sick of our hearts and the deceit that it keeps playing. We are aware of the wrongs that our heart does and the mind thinks. We should stop doing that, but we continue to move on the same path.

Even though most of us want to move away from the wrong path to the right one, we are somehow unable to do so, thereby leading to humans becoming a mystery to themselves. Humans are the greatest creation of God, yet the most deceitful.

Humans may be a mystery to themselves but they aren’t a mystery to God, their creator. So, Jeremiah says that God wishes to solve this mystery of humans but that is only possible if we develop a relationship with him. - Discover Christian Gifts from the Holy Land

Thus, in this verse by Jeremiah, we can agree that he once again brings to our notice God’s love for His people, His subjects and His creation, humankind.

“The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.”

The verse appears right after the Prophet questions, “Who can stand before his indignation? Who can endure the heat of his anger?” (v. 6). As the amazing Bible verse goes, God is merciful to those who repent their sins, have faith in God and follow and obey his commands.

But, Ninevites do not do any of the following and rise in power to rebel against the merciful God. This verse by Nahum points to two directions:

God knew he would forgive the Ninevites if they repented. Even when Jonah spoke of it, God mercifully forgave them despite knowing they would rise in revolt against Him.

During Nahum’s time, God knew the Ninevites would rebel against him, but he ignored it. He could not have ignored the message and knowing that they would rebel against Him, He could have taken action. But God being kind wanted people to be free from His wrath. This is what God wishes for His people, to be free from his wrath and yet be brought upon the right track.

However, God is not universally merciful. As much as God’s mercy is huge, so is his wrath. God is kind only to those who repent their sins and believe with all their might on Him. He forgives those who obey him, but the consequences aren’t the same for all. The ones who do not obey his orders need to be brought in front for the judgement.

6. [Is] not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke? 7. [Is it] not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?

This verse of Isaiah points to the unconditional love of God towards everyone. Isaiah ensures that humans need to set free. The verse states that humbleness should be provided for all. Not only does it talk about the love of God towards humans, but also the love of humans to humans.

The Jewish people believe in the concept of mercy, and every year during Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, they believe in donating Psalms to repent the sins of their past year and ask for mercies from the Almighty. He says that as much as God is merciful to us, we should be kind and merciful to each other as well. 

We should clothe the naked ones, because they have the same blood and flesh as ours. We, being the children of God are related to each other and should come forward to help each other.

2. How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah. 3. Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy. 4. Deliver the poor and needy: rid [them] out of the hand of the wicked.

This amazing Biblical verse talks of the mercy of God and the wrath of God towards injustice. Rather than protecting the already sufficient ones, we should work towards protecting the ones who are already weak and fatherless. 

We should walk on the path of helping those who love God, obey Him and have belief in Him. God helps those who need Him, and rescues them from the hands of the ones who oppress them.

2. O give thanks unto the God of gods: for his mercy [endureth] for ever. 3. O give thanks to the Lord of lords: for his mercy [endureth] for ever.

Give thanks to the God of gods, for his steadfast love endures forever. Give thanks to the Lord of lords: His love endures forever to him who alone does great wonders, His love endures forever.

As stated in Jewish Holy books and all the other Holy books, God is the Almighty, merciful creature who forgives those who repent their sins. While we have a love of God, humans should also reflect their kindness and gratitude towards Him.

He has endured the sins of mankind and took all the pain on Him, so we should be grateful to him. As the saying goes, “God helps those who Help themselves,” the verse depicts the same. 

One who is self-sufficient enough to do all His works by himself, God will stand by him to protect him. God keeps his mercy bestowed on them for long and forever if they are sufficient enough. So, to get God’s love, one should be sufficient enough to help themselves.

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

In this verse, God assures humans that he will always be there. As He says, “I am your God,” He assures that He will strengthen us and keep us self-sufficient in the worst of days. God asks us not to fear anyone. As long as a person has trust and faith in God, He will hold them and get them through.

God asks never to lose faith. Anyone who has faith in himself will have faith in God and be supported by God. In all our weak days, God will hold us up and help us get through it. As long as you have faith in God, you can be sure to overcome all types of hurdles.

Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations

Know therefore that the LORD your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations.

The Bible verse brings to everyone’s notice, the mercy of the Divine creator. God will bestow his love and trust to the one who has undying faith in Him. God is God, who will ensure complete mercy on everyone.

He is the steadfast and loving God who will bestow his mercy on anyone who obeys Him and follows his path. This love and mercy will be bestowed on them for a thousand generations. Hence, the entire mankind will be loved by God as long as they continue to have faith in Him.

The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing

Not only is God kind, but also a warrior. Our God is in hiding and helps you get over. He is the one who is overwhelmed with joy, and will continue with Quiet. 

He doesn’t show his love, but keeps on bestowing His love, on His people. If the person is victorious and joyous, God will rejoice more than him because he is His Child. Like a father, God too rejoices on the happiness of his children.
