Understanding the Depth of God’s Love

Apr 7, 2024

God’s love is truly unparalleled and beyond our comprehension. As John 3:16 states, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him may not perish but may have eternal life.” This kind of love does not exist in the world and only comes from God.

Salvation through Jesus Christ not only brings us new life but also adopts us into God’s family. “But when the right time came, God sent his Son, born of a woman, subject to the law. God sent him to buy freedom for us, who were slaves to the law, so that he could adopt us as his very own children. And because we are his children, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, prompting us to call out, ‘Abba, Father.’ Now you are no longer a slave but God’s own child. And since you are his child, God has made you his heir” (Galatians 4:4-7). As treasured sons and daughters of the King, we are offered an incredible relationship with our Heavenly Father. We are His cherished children and heirs of His Kingdom.

As mentioned throughout scripture, demonstrating love and respect towards God involves following His commandments and pursuing a righteous life. For instance, John 14:15 says, “If you love me, you will keep my commandments.” While obedience doesn’t earn us salvation, it does reflect our loyalty and love for God. Rather than viewing it as a burden, obedience is a privilege and blessing for God’s children. Romans 8:38-39 eloquently states that nothing, not even death or powers of hell, can separate us from God’s love. His love is eternal and unconditional.

Your Call to Action

You are a beloved child of God, and He is your loving Father. As you continue to grow in your understanding of the depth of God’s love, strive to honor and obey Him with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength. Take a moment to reflect on God’s endless love today, and how you can demonstrate your gratitude through your words, deeds, and life.

“Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love” (1 John 4:8).

“But because of His great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved” (Ephesians 2:4-5).

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails” (1 Corinthians 13:4-8).


Father God, we praise Your holy name! We thank You, Lord, for Your goodness to us. Your abundant love is so precious to us. Help us to improve daily and to embrace a righteous life in Christ. We want to be obedient to Your word and to honor You in all we do and say. Let us be a reflection of You and show Your love and light to the world. In Your precious name, we pray, Amen.

A Comforting Closure
