Does God Love Everyone? The Book Of John States: For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)
Gods love is something we don’t always feel, but it’s something we can look too. In my life I’ve questioned if God really loves everyone, but ultimately all of those questions boiled down to one question.
Does God really love me?
Ultimately speaking, people aren’t worried about others half way around the world (we should be), and I don’t mean we’re not charitable, but we focus more energy on our day to day lives, and the people around us.
Does God Love Everyone?
In my heart I’ve asked God a lot of questions about the love of God, and most of the time his love for the world makes no sense to me.
In our heads, we all ask the same questions:
- We Wonder If We’re Really Lovable.
- Why Doesn’t God Hate Us, When We’ve Sinned So Much.
- You’ve Screwed Up So Much, There’s No Way He’ll Take You Back.
Many of these beliefs come from a faulty view of love and God. If there’s one thing I want you to remember in this blog post. God isn’t just love, he’s the source of it.
The source and creator of love, wanted you back in his life so much. that he sent his Son Jesus to die for you. This means a lot, but here’s a brief overview.
- You Matter And Have Meaning In Him.
- God Has An Epic Plan For You.
- You Don’t Have To Be Alone Anymore.
What Does The Bible Say About God Loving Others?
God loved the world so much because we are his creation. In ages past God The Father, God the Son (Jesus), and God the Holy Spirit lived have existed. I won’t get deep into this, because we don’t know a lot about this prehistory.
However, in reading the Bible, and studying the love of God. I’ve come to think that he was lonely.
Why else would you create a civilization to worship and love you?
As much as we need God, part of me wonders if he really needs us?
How Did God Show Us His Love?
How Does A Loving God Send People To Hell?
People have asked me how a loving God could send people to hell, and for years the answer alluded me. However I’ve come to realize that if God is love, and all love flows from him. He’s honoring their choice.
God doesn’t send people to hell. He allows people to leave his presence when they don’t want to be around him. Since all that is good comes from him, they must go to a place where everything is bad.
That’s how people wind up in hell. It’s chosen.
God loves everyone and wants every person to be with him. However, love is a choice, and he will honor whatever choice people make.
After all, he is the one who created us, and the big issue we have is sin, because of our sin, we are broken. So it’s hard to see the entire picture.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have eternal life. … 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.John 3:16-17
While these views have some truth in them, neither of them are correct, especially when polarized to each side. I personally see them as both sides of the same coin, and we need to find a balance between the two beliefs. If you read the Bible, you can prove either stance. As long as you’re cherry picking bible verses. But we can’t put God in a box and it doesn’t work that way.
Does The Bible Say, God, Loves Everyone? John 3:16
So, Are You Still Wondering; Does God Love Everyone? The most famous bible verse in the world answers it.
“For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.
When you give your life, you’re giving your most treasured possession, and you’re stepping into the unknown. This was what Jesus did. Even more remarkable is what the Bible says in Romans on this subject.
That while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
God sent Jesus, when we were at a point of ignorance. We weren’t even acknowledging him as God, or even someone who loves us. We ignored him and didn’t want anything to do with him. But he was sent because of Gods love for us.
I often wonder what went through Gods mind as he watched his son Jesus beaten, abused, and crucified. Maybe he was looking at you, in heaven with him.
This is what true love is. Jesus said it the best when he said
There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.John 15:13
There’s a lie going around that perpetuate a messed up belief about God not loving us. Jesus has done many things, and even looking at these proves what the truth is. Don’t listen to the lies, fill your heart with the truth.
Jesus Loves You, God Loves You, And The Holy Spirit Loves You.
Does Love Come From God?
When you read and study the Bible, eventually you’ll start seeing it as a love story. Our main character is God and he loves his people dearly, but they betray him. So he sends his son Jesus to earth in an epic plan to reconcile us to him. However his son shows up, and we kill him for it.
- Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? (Romans 8:35)
- But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us. (Ephesians 2:4)
Through the death and resurrection of Jesus, God proved his love for us, and he also made a way for us to spend eternity with him.
If God Loves Everyone Will He Forgive Every Sin?
the Bible only says 1 specific sin is unforgivable, and that’s blaspheming the Holy Spirit. Unfortunately the Bible is very unclear as to what that is, and many biblical scholars have argued over its meaning.
I believe the love of Jesus will cover a multitude of sins, and every sin except for that one can be forgiven, and you shouldn’t worry about committing blasphemy. It isn’t something you can fall into. I believe it’s something you’ll knowingly do. As long as you love God, obey his commands, and ask his forgiveness when you mess up I’m going to have faith that you’ll be alright.
When you sin ask for forgiveness and he will be faithful and just to forgive you of those sins. Don’t let your heart be hardened and follow in his footsteps by helping those around you. This is the way to God’s heart.
Does It Really Say God Loves Everyone, In the Bible?
If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, He lives in them and they in God. 16 And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God and He in them. 17 This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world, we are like Jesus. 18 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.1 John 4:15-18
I put a whole sections of verses in here, because love isn’t just about 1 person. Love is about sharing with others, and that is what this verse is about.
This verse is speaking dead on about Gods love for everyone. We can also go back to John 3:16 and say God loved the world so much that he gave his son.
We question Gods love for everyone, because we don’t feel worthy. Our sin makes us feel dirty, unloved, and weak. So like Adam in the garden we hide in shame.
Unfortunately, this shame stops us from seeing the true glory and love of God, and since we’re in hiding, we can’t reflect either.
If God Loves Everyone. Why Do I Feel Like He Hates Me?
And Here is the truth:
You Are Loved By God, And He Sent His Only Son Jesus To Die For You. He did this while you were still in your sin, and he gave his life knowing you still had a choice to choose him still.
He went through pain, abuse, and death. All the while hoping you would choose to be with him.
The things you’ve done do not matter, and how you feel will change. This is the truth. As I write I pray over my posts, and I believe you’re here reading this for a purpose. God wants you to know he loves you, and his goal is to know you.
Give your heart to him today, ask him into your life. You don’t have to live life alone. He came to repair the way.
