Bible verses about
God’s Love for Humanity

God created humanity. Every person who ever lived on this planet did so because God loved them and wanted to spend eternity with them.

“All have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23 WEB). No one is free from the horror of sin. Yet God, in His infinite love, has provided us a way out. His Son sacrificed Himself for us. We cannot save ourselves from the darkness of sin, but Jesus can. All we have to do is ask Him to and accept His gift.

God loved humans from the beginning

Genesis 1:26-27, 31

God said, “Let’s make man in our image, after our likeness. Let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the sky, and over the livestock, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” God created man in his own image. In God’s image he created him; male and female he created them. God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. There was evening and there was morning, a sixth day.

God satisfies all desires

Psalm 145:15-16

See the birds of the sky, that they don’t sow, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns. Your heavenly Father feeds them. Aren’t you of much more value than they?
