WHAT IS GOD’S LOVE?
(Understand Your Heavenly Father’s Love)
👤 Pastor Chris Oyakhilome;
📖 TO THE BIBLE
John 3:16 TLB “For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son so that anyone who believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
◀️ LET’S TALK
What is love? It’s that endearing value of a person that gives you a sense of his or her importance to you as the object of your favour. 1 John 3:1 says, “Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.” The word, “bestowed” also means “lavished”; the Father has lavished His love on you. It’s love without limits.
Think about it: we who shouldn’t have been known of God, who shouldn’t have ever come close to God are now, as a result of the superabundant love He’s lavished upon us, accepted of Him. Therefore, that God loves you means you’re special and valuable to Him. This understanding will change your life and give you an extraordinary mentality.
Consider a man like David, who had a unique perception of the love of God; his understanding of the Father’s love made him think differently. In Psalm 23:1 (TLB) for example, he said, “Because the Lord is my Shepherd, I have everything I need!” This alone lets you know what David thought about God, for which reason he was such a success, and his life, so victorious! He knew he was valuable to God, and the object of His favour.
Always take out time to meditate on God’s love. Think about His grace, kindness and the fact that if you were the only one on earth, the Lord Jesus would still have given His life for you. That’s how valuable you are to God. Dare to believe this and let it sink deep into your consciousness; it’ll change your life forever and give you a new confidence.
God loves you just the way you are. You didn’t have to impress Him to get His love or approval, for you could never earn it by your own actions, but by grace. He chose to love you. All you have to do is accept His love as simply as it has come to you, and be conscious of His love for you always.
Think Big! Believe Big! Live Big!

Dear Father, I thank you for your love, and your grace upon my life. Thank you for making me the object of your grace, glory, and righteousness; my life is the expression of your praise, now and forever, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
