I John 4:16
“And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.”
We can have full assurance that God loves us.We know this because God is love and He sent His Son to die in our place paying the wages of our sin.We experienced this love when we were born again—we were changed inside out.We now have God living within us as the last statement of this verse says “God in him.” The Christian must know and believe the love God has for us. We should consider what it would take to make us stop believing God loves us. The Bible tells us that nothing can separate us from the love of God that is in Jesus Christ (Romans 8:35-39), and each Christian should have this same confidence.
We love God and fellow believers because He first loved us
