'God Is Love': 28 Bible Verses About Love.

Welcome to the month of love! Are you a fan of Valentine's Day? Do you know what the Bible has to say about Valentine's Day? Well, the Bible has a lot to say about love, maybe not specifically about Valentine's Day though! There are many Bible verses about love and we will be studying 28 of them this month, with daily devotionals in our Restoring Beauty For Ashes Facebook Group HERE. This Bible reading plan is focusing on the unconditional love of God for us and Bible verses about Jesus love. Make sure you download this bible reading plan PDF with a bible study journal included with prompts to encourage you during your own devotional time. You will find it in our Resource Library HERE.

Here is the perfect Bible verse about Jesus' love for us and how we should love others this Valentine's Day and every day!

1 John 4:7-12. Dear friends: let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.

God loves you! Did you know that?

Bible Reading Plan:

This bible reading plan consists of 28 bible verses about love. If you are looking for a daily bible reading plan this is perfect. I have divided it up into two sections, one with 14 bible verses about Jesus love for us and 14 bible verses about the unconditional love of God.

Love Of Jesus Bible Verses:

  1. Romans 5:8: But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.

  2. John 3:16: “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."

  3. 1 John 4:19: We love each other because he loved us first.

  4. Matthew 22:37-39: Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’38 This is the first and greatest commandment.39 A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’

  5. 1 Corinthians 13:13: Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.

  6. John 15:9-17: “I have loved you even as the Father has loved me. Remain in my love.10 When you obey my commandments, you remain in my love, just as I obey my Father’s commandments and remain in his love.11 I have told you these things so that you will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow!12 This is my commandment: Love each other in the same way I have loved you.13 There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.14 You are my friends if you do what I command.15 I no longer call you slaves, because a master doesn’t confide in his slaves. Now you are my friends since I have told you everything the Father told me.16 You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name.17 This is my command: Love each other."

  7. John 14:6: Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.

  8. 1 Corinthians 13:1-3: If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.2 If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing.3 If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it;[a] but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing.

  9. 1 John 4:16: We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love. God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them.

  10. John 10:10: The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.

  11. John 5:13: The man didn’t know, for Jesus had disappeared into the crowd.

  12. 1 Peter 4:8: Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins.

  13. 2 Timothy 1:7: For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.

  14. 1 John 4:8-10: But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love. God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.

Unconditional love of God:

  1. Isaiah 54:10: For the mountains may move and the hills disappear, but even then my faithful love for you will remain. My covenant of blessing will never be broken,” says the Lord, who has mercy on you.

  2. Psalm 86:15: But you, O Lord, are a God of compassion and mercy, slow to get angry

  3. and filled with unfailing love and faithfulness.

  4. Zephaniah 3:17: For the Lord your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.”

  5. 1 John 3:1: See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children, and that is what we are! But the people who belong to this world don’t recognize that we are God’s children because they don’t know him.

  6. Romans 8:1-4: So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus.2 And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death.3 The law of Moses was unable to save us because of the weakness of our sinful nature. So God did what the law could not do. He sent his own Son in a body like the bodies we sinners have. And in that body God declared an end to sin’s control over us by giving his Son as a sacrifice for our sins.4 He did this so that the just requirement of the law would be fully satisfied for us, who no longer follow our sinful nature but instead follow the Spirit.

  7. Romans 8:31-32: What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us?32 Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else?

  8. Deuteronomy 7:9: Understand, therefore, that the Lord your God is indeed God. He is the faithful God who keeps his covenant for a thousand generations and lavishes his unfailing love on those who love him and obey his commands.

  9. Ephesians 3:18-19: And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is.19 May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

  10. Ephesians 1:5-6: God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.6 So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son.

  11. 1 Chronicles 16:34: God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.6 So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son.

  12. 1 John 4:7-8: Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is a child of God and knows God.8 But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love.

  13. Psalm 36:7: How precious is your unfailing love, O God! All humanity finds shelter in the shadow of your wings.

  14. Galatians 2:20: My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

  15. Romans 8:38-39: And 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.39 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.

This is one of the pages from our bible reading PDF that you can download. It is designed to help you to dig deeper into each verse from our Bible reading plan. You can print it out or download it to an app that reads PDF's such as iBooks or Adobe Fill And Sign. I have been enjoying using these apps. I purchased a cheap digital stylus pen and I have been having fun with it! I find it hard to write with but it's brilliant when you use it on your phone in the text boxes that you can place on the different sections on the PDF. I use it to tap on the keyboard. It is great for when I find stolen moments in my day to have some devotional time! There is also a lined page for you to record notes. It would be handy for recording notes during a sermon!

You will find this free download in the Resource Library HERE.

Let's talk about how to benefit from this list of God Is Love scriptures:

I find that writing them out, allows you time to learn them and think about them more deeply. I have some pretty journal stationary with prompts to help you during your devotional time. It should take about 10 minutes to write each verse but spend as much time as you have, sitting in God's presence and listening for His Holy Spirit speaking to your heart, instructing, and guiding you.

Copying scripture and carrying it with us throughout the day, reading it and memorizing it, makes God's word a part of us. It renews your mind and calms your anxious heart.

Take Action :

  1. Download the scripture verse list, journal paper HERE.

  2. Find a quiet place with your cup of coffee, Bible, and a favorite pen.

  3. Pray as you write your scripture verse for that day.

  4. Ask God to reveal Himself to you and listen for the Holy Spirit to speak to you.

  5. If you feel convicted of something- confess it and ask for forgiveness.

  6. If you feel moved to worship - worship God! Just enjoy His presence.

  7. Most important: make an appointment with yourself, journal, and God every day for your scripture writing time. I find it works best for me to do it in the morning. It helps me to gain ' God's perspective' on my day. But you do it in your own perfect time. The important thing to remember is to do it and if you miss a day - just double up the next one!
