God doesn’t just love; God is love (1 John 4:16). The word ‘love’ is used over 500 times in the Bible (NIV). It was Jesus who told us that God loves the world.
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.”
The Psalmist wrote:
Ps 145:8-9 The LORD is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love. The LORD is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made.
