GOD'S LOVE

Activated - - NEWS -

The Lord your God is liv­ing among you. … He will take de­light in you with glad­ness. … He will re­joice over you with joy­ful songs. —Zepha­niah 3:17 NLT Though we are in­com­plete, God loves us com­pletely. Though we are im­per­fect, He loves us per­fectly. Though we may feel lost and with­out com­pass, God’s love en­com­passes us com­pletely. ... He loves ev­ery one of us, even those who are flawed, re­jected, awk­ward, sor­row­ful, or bro­ken.— Di­eter F. Ucht­dorf (b. 1940) The maker of the stars would rather die for you than live with­out you. And that is a fact. So if you need to brag, brag about that. — Max Lu­cado (b. 1955) God’s un­fail­ing love for us is an ob­jec­tive fact af­firmed over and over in the Scrip­tures. It is true whether we be­lieve it or not. Our doubts do not de­stroy God’s love, nor does our faith cre­ate it. It orig­i­nates in the very na­ture of God, who is love, and it flows to us through our union with His beloved Son. — Jerry Bridges (1929–2016) God is love. He didn’t need us. But he wanted us. And that is the most amaz­ing thing.— Rick Warren (b. 1954) I am con­vinced that noth­ing can ever sep­a­rate us from God’s love. Nei­ther death nor life, nei­ther an­gels nor de­mons, nei­ther our fears for today nor our wor­ries about to­mor­row—not even the pow­ers of hell can sep­a­rate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth be­low—in­deed, noth­ing in all cre­ation will ever be able to sep­a­rate us from the love of God that is re­vealed in Christ Je­sus our Lord. —Ro­mans 8:38–39 NLT Your Heav­enly Father loves you— each of you. That love never changes. It is not in­flu­enced by your ap­pear­ance, by your pos­ses­sions, or by the amount of money you have in your bank ac­count. It is not changed by your tal­ents and abil­i­ties. It is sim­ply there. It is there for you when you are sad or happy, dis­cour­aged or hope­ful. God’s love is there for you whether or not you feel you de­serve love. It is sim­ply al­ways there. —Thomas S. Monson (b. 1927)
