Does God Really Love Me?

Does God Really Love Me?

Does God really love me?

Yes, He really does. God loves you with a deep, abiding love. He loves you more than you will ever know or possibly imagine.

Check out John 3:16, the most recognized Bible verse: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

worldDid you catch that? For God so LOVED the world . . .

Still not sure?

Perhaps you’re not wrestling with the reality of God’s love for you, but wondering how God can love you. After all, if He really knew your heart or saw all of those things you’ve done, then He would turn away just like the others.
