Does God Truly Love People


Hi, Jesus loves you

Do you think that God loves people?

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life – John 3:16 (KJV).


Yes, God truly loves the world. Circumstances, experiences of people, wrong information and lack of the knowledge of God have made people to wonder whether God really loves people. This post is to assure you that God surely loves and cares for people.


People for one reason or another, doubt God’s love for them. Some people conclude on the nature of God by comparing Him with men who are in positions as fathers in their lives and do not love people. These are men who do not understand what it means to be a father and have failed as fathers.


Also, the perspective of people of God as one autocratic god, who has a sledge hammer ever ready to use it without mercy, contributes to them doubting God’s love. Yes, God disciplines us, as a true father should, but with the other hand He comforts us and guides us on the right path to take.


Now, an understanding of God and His love for people will wipe away all fears and misunderstandings.


God is love (1 John 4:8). It is God’s nature to love. He doesn’t just love people, He is love personified. And just like 2 Timothy 2:13 says, God will not deny Himself even if we don’t believe. God doesn’t wait for us to love Him first before He showers His love on us. If we are sincere, we will recount times that unexpected good things happened to us despite the wrong actions we took – that was God’s love in action.
