The Love of Jesus

Do you know that Jesus loves you? It's true, He does!  The Bible tells me so. Let me show you.

"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."  (Joh 3:16)

"But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." (Rom 5:8)

"But God has shown us how much He loves us." (Rom 5:8a, GNB)

"But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved 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." (Rom 8:37-39)

"See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God; and such we are. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him."  (1Jn 3:1)

"Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God." (1Jn 4:7)

"The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love."  (1Jn 4:8)

"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. (1Jn 4:9)

"In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins." (1Jn 4:10)

"Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another." (1Jn 4:11)

"We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him." (1Jn 4:16)

"We love, because He first loved us."  (1Jn 4:19)

"But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us..." (Eph 2:4)

"But when the kindness of God our Savior and His love for mankind appeared..." (Tit 3:4)

"I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God." (Eph 3:16-19, NIV)

"John to the seven churches that are in Asia: Grace to you and peace, from Him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven Spirits who are before His throne, and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him who loves us and released us from our sins by His blood-- and He has made us to be a kingdom, priests to His God and Father--to Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen."  (Rev 1:4-6)

Therefore, you should not question whether Jesus loves you.  He has already demonstrated His love for you. Just believe it and accept it. Believe that He shed His blood, died on the cross for you, and rose again from the dead. Repent of your sins, ask Him to forgive you, and live for Him every day of your life, so that you can spend eternity in heaven serving Him.

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus.  Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15).  He preached that we must repent and believe.

Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"
