How can we know that God loves us? What are His proof the He loves all human beings? God wants us to know, believe, feel, and see that He loves us. Love is an action not just an emotion, and God shows His love in innumerable ways.
God is loving Father in Heaven, and He loves His children perfectly. Before we loved Him, He has already loved us, and the proof of His love is found everywhere. So, hold on to His promise of love as we enumerate the things that show God’s love for all human beings.
- God show His love by blessing us. In the blessings He provides us, we can see the love of God. From the beauty of the globe to the persons of our lives, because He loves us, God continually gives us great and tiny gifts.
- God shows His love through other people. Sometimes in peaceful times a feeling will wash over us. We often experience this impression when we are out in nature, when we give a prayer, or when we serve others. This feeling is the love of God.
- God show His love through His Son, Jesus Christ. One of the biggest acts of love for us by God was sending His Son, Jesus, to the earth. We can feel the love of God through Jesus ‘ teachings and grace, be forgiven, and learn to love the people around us.
- God shows His love through atonement. What urged God to abandon Christ into the world to save us is the love of God for us. For our sins, which separated us from Him, Christ paid. Not only does this sacrifice bring us peace with God, but it also takes us into a loving personal connection with Him. The atoning love of God through Christ is the origin of all our divine blessings.
- God show His love through redemption. We have no authority to satisfy the law of God because of our sinful nature. But the love of God is shown by Christ who redeemed the price we owed for our rebellion, or paid it. The redemptive love of God frees us from guilt and fear.
- God show His love through justifying love. Through faith in Christ, the love of God is shown by justifying us (or declaring us innocent). Christ will be regarded as the sinner, and the sinner will be treated as the righteous. God considers us now, rather than through our sin, through the righteousness of Christ. The justifying love of God enables us to stand before Him as His accepted children.
- God show His love through adoptive love. God demonstrates His love for us not only by forgiving us our sins, but also by going further and taking us into His family. He has enabled us to share in the saints’ heritage. This heritage involves salvation, strength, hope, peace, comfort, providence, communion, and more! The adoption of love by God enables us to call Him “Father.”
- God show His love through sanctification. Another way God demonstrates His love is by sanctifying us for His purpose, or setting us apart. In two respects we are sanctified: positionally and gradually. When we come to Christ, we are sanctified “positionally.” The priests would continuously create sacrifices in the Old Testament because they never paid for sin permanently. But Christ provided Himself as the ideal sacrifice and paid once and for all for our sins. So, in order to achieve salvation through Christ, we sanctified or set apart.
Throughout our Christian life we are also “increasingly” sanctified. Progressive sanctification is not about our salvation— we are saved through grace and not through works — it is about how we live after we are saved.
The method of dying to sin and living for Christ by becoming more like Him is progressive sanctification. It’s about creating the Spirit’s fruits rather than creating the flesh’s fruits. The sanctifying love of God distinguishes us for His unique plans.
- God shows His love through glorification. Lastly, by glorifying us, God demonstrates His love. We will fight with sin throughout our life, but we are promised to complete the excellent job that God starts in us. Our sinful nature will be left behind when we go to be with the Lord, and we will love Him and Him forever. God’s glorifying love is Christians’ ultimate destination.
- God show His love through faith. The love of God is steadfast for you. It is a love that is loyal, unshakable, and immovable. God has been loyal in saving you, and He will continue to be loyal in the presence of Jesus Christ. He started a nice job in you and you can be sure He’ll complete it as well. If He didn’t love you, would God be loyal to you? Not at all. Since God loves you, He is loyal to you.
