Why does God love Me?

Why Does God Love Me

A popular statement of God’s love for the world comes from John 3:16:

“For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, so that whoever believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.”

But the next verse (John 3:17) reminds us that Christ’s life and example of love is unconditional and free from condemnation. As the Church, we live, worship, grow, and serve in this true example of love as we work to be the hands, feet, heart, and voice of God in a world that is being healed through that same unconditional love. It is love that reaches every man, woman, and child and helps them find a place and purpose in life.

Matthew 22:36-40

“Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?” He said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”
