God Loves You


Brent Smith


God loves you so he sent Jesus to the cross, his only begotten Son, so that you could be forgiven of your sins (John 3.16).

God loves you with a "great love" and was merciful when you were dead in sin and made you alive (Ephesians 2.4-5).

God loves you and is therefore with you, and for you (Romans 1.31, 35).

God loves you and thus calls you his daughter or is son (I John 5.3).

God loves you and disciplines (chastens and scourges) you as his child (Hebrews 12.6).

God loves you and is very "pitiful" and "merciful" during difficult times (James 5.11).

God loves you and has delayed the judgment day on your behalf so that you will have time to repent and not be lost throughout eternity (II Peter 3.9).

God loves you and has done all this and more on your behalf so that you can be with him in heaven throughout all eternity. Now, if you love him back, you will simply do what he tells you to do (I John 5.3).
