Why wouldn’t anyone not love Jesus, He love us first and while we sinners? He died for us before we ever knew Him or heard of Him.

As we enjoy our series, Falling In Love With Jesus. here are few love verses. Let’s pick one to focus on today, and purpose to look up more and maybe share them in e-mails, or on social media. People really need to know His love, they need to read it, speak it, and share it.

But we also have to believe it. So many times, I start to feel like I don’t live up to expectations, or might not practice what I preach, I know that is just an accusation, I really do know His love, I could never even with my writing prowess put in onto words worthy of Him.

We all need refreshing and encouragement, even on a daily basis and often times more, so these verse are just what we want to sow in our hearts, and we are determined to be good ground and not let the enemy steal it.

So great is His unfailing love. Lamentations 3:32

I love the Lord, for He heard my voice; He heard my cry for mercy. Because He turned His ear to me, I will call on Him as long as I live. Psalm 116:2

If you love me keep my commandments. John 14:15

Greater love hath no man than this, to lay down His life for His friends. John 15:13

Whoever loves me will keep my Word. John 15:23

Let all you do be done in love. 1 Corinthians 16:14

…and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. Ephesians 5:2

Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony. Colossians 3:14

Love one another deeply and from the heart. 1 Peter 1:22

But if anyone obeys His word, love for God is truly made complete in them. This is how we know we are in Him: 1 John 2:5

God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. 1 John 4:16

Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear. If we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not fully experienced His perfect love. 1 John 4:18

By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep His commandments. 1 John 5:2
