When talking about God’s love, many people doubt why it is always said that God loves everyone.

Many Bible verses explain God’s love and how that love saved the people of Israel when they needed it most.
Exploring the Bible’s Teachings on God’s Love
God’s love covers everyone and help to understand many of the things he did throughout history, here are some Bible verses that talk about God’s love.
God loves every one of his children | 1 John 4:10
This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
This verse describes how God had loved each of his children since long before they were born, and how he sent his only son to wash away the sins of mankind.
There is no greater display of love than the sacrifice God made to grant salvation to all his children; God knows each child and loves them all.
God is the best friend – John 15:13
Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
Jesus has always been a close friend, he loves his neighbor so much that he gave his life for human beings, to receive forgiveness and salvation.
There is no greater, more honest, powerful, and transforming friendship and expression than in Jesus.
God’s love knows no bounds | Romans 5:8
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
This verse describes that although God knows the faults of his children, he loves them above all things, and there is nothing hidden from God.
God’s love has no limit, nor is it subject to people’s behavior, God will always be willing to forgive and restore, you just have to approach him with humility and repentance.
God loves even more than the most loving mother | Isaiah 49:15
Can a mother forget the baby at her breast
and have no compassion on the child she has borne?
Though she may forget,
I will not forget you!
It is always said that there is no love that is more honest and pure than that of a mother, but God’s love is even greater than that of the most loving mother.
God’s love fills the heart and transforms life, takes away fear and makes it so that there is never again a feeling of loneliness, because his presence is always at one’s side.
As Christian writer Jennifer Rothschild puts it in her book 66 ways God loves you:
“Because he loves us, he tells us where we came from and who we are. Because he loves us, he gives us lyrics to sing when our hearts can’t form words. Because he loves us, he gives us practical teaching and boundaries to protect our hearts. The whole thing is one big expression of a father’s love for his children. Even the parts that some think are rough and hard to swallow, are still expressions of a loving God Who has plans “…to prosper you and not to harm you” (Jeremiah 29:11). Because, ultimately, God is “not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9). It’s all about love!” Said Rothschild in an interview with BibleGateway.
God transforms lives | 1 John 3:1
See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.
The moment you accept God’s love, your whole life is transformed, and you become part of God’s family with all the privileges of a child.
How do you know if you are the child of God? You have to tell God to reign in your heart, recognize the sacrifice of his son, and accept him as a Lord and Savior.
God loves and protects his children under his wings | Psalm 36:7
How priceless is your unfailing love, O God!
People take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
God protects his children as a bird cares for its young, God grants protection from the dangers of the world, God is a protective and loving father.
God is the refuge when feelings of pain, need, or loneliness cloud the mind, his love sustains, and helps resist the trials of life.
The greatest expression of love was the sacrifice of Jesus | 2 Corinthians 8:9
For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.
Jesus came down from heaven and gave up His glory to sacrifice Himself for the sins of mankind, that speaks of how precious God’s children are to Him.
Jesus was willing to give His life for love, He expressed how much He values mankind in that great sacrifice on the cross of Calvary.
God sacrificed Himself to cleanse the sins of His children | John 3:16
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
God became incarnate, was among his children, and went to the cross to wash away the sins of mankind–an incredible expression of love.
Likewise, God gives free will for each one to choose; God accepts you in his wings to everyone who needs it.
God’s love does not forsake: Psalm 94:18-19
When I said, “My foot is slipping,”
your unfailing love, Lord, supported me.
When anxiety was great within me,
your consolation brought me joy.
God’s love for his children is so great that he accompanies them at all times, he does not abandon them in trouble or in pain.
God remains at the side of those who need him; he extends his hand and comforts them; he asks them to cling to him in difficult moments of life.
The love of God strengthens – Romans 5:5
And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.
God’s spirit dwells in his children, his love fills life with hope, strengthens in difficult moments and helps to face the future with impetus.
When God’s love is present, there is no anguish, anxiety, or pain, for he is a mighty giant before his child.
