When people think of loving someone, they usually think of one of three things: loving your friends, loving your family, or loving your relationship partner.
A friendship love is most likely the longest lasting love. For a lot of people, friendship has been the most reliable love in their lives and has the least complications and hassles in their life.
For me, the first time I learned about love was from my family. They taught me how to love and showed me what it was like to be loved. They will always be there for me when I’m struggling or in trouble.
Finally, there is the relationship love. Being in a relationship is such a wonderful thing, and allowing love to flow from each other’s hearts is truly wondrous. Having a relationship partner is amazing because you can show love for one another, and know that it’s true.
Having all those said, what very little people think about when they hear the phrase “loving someone” is how much our Heavenly Father loves you! The word “love” is mentioned 310 times in 280 verses in the KJV.
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” John 3:16 — God loved us before anyone else did. He loves us so much, that He gave his ONLY son so that we could live sinless lives. God doesn’t just love, God is love.
“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love. By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him.” 1 John 4:7-9 — God is love, and if we don’t love then we do not know God. God showed us this love first and foremost, and so we must use that love and show it to others, and let that love flow out of our hearts and into others.
“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8 — God loved us no matter who we are, or what we’ve done. He is ALWAYS able to forgive us and will ALWAYS love us.
“For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39 — Nothing can separate Gods love for us. It will run through our bodies and quench the thirst of our soul and fill us forevermore.
In conclusion, Gods love will never fail us. He will always love us and will always be there for us.
