God Personifies Love

God is the personification of love — and he loves us.

Some people look at their life, the good things they do and the bad things they don’t do, thinking that they are good and therefore worthy of God’s love.

Others consider their life, the bad things that they do and the good things that they don’t do, concluding that they are bad and therefore unworthy of God’s love.

The truth is that there is nothing we can do that will make God live us any more and nothing that we can do that will cause him to love us any less.

God’s love for us is perfect and unconditional.  We can’t earn it and we can’t lose it.

God is love.

[See 1 John 4:8 and 16, Psalm 89:28, and Lamentations 3:22, and many others.]

A lifelong student of the Bible, Peter DeHaan, PhD, wrote the 700-page website ABibleADay.com to encourage people to explore the Bible. His main blog and numerous books urge Christians to push past the status quo and reconsider how they practice their faith in every area of their lives.
