Does God Still Love You?

Have you ever found yourself questioning whether God still loves you? It may seem like a silly question, but let’s be honest—we’ve all had moments where we’ve done or said something foolish and wondered if God’s love for us could waver. However, as believers in Christ, our position is that of sons and daughters of God. This means that our perspective when we look towards heaven is that of heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ (Rom. 8:17).

Our Position in Christ

So, what does it mean to be heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ? It means that our relationship with God is not based on our actions or words. The mistakes we make or the foolish things we say do not change our position in Christ. We cannot earn more of God’s love or lose any of it because his love for us is unconditional. He loves us fully and completely, no matter what we do.

Embracing Gods Unchanging Love

It can be difficult to fully grasp the concept of God’s unchanging love, especially when we are so used to conditional love in our human relationships. We may have experienced love that is given or taken away based on our performance or behavior. But God’s love is different. It is constant, unwavering and unchanging.

When we understand and embrace God’s unconditional love, it brings us a sense of security and peace. We no longer have to worry about whether we are deserving of his love or if we have done enough to earn it. His love for us is not based on what we do, but on who he is.

Living in the Freedom of Gods Love

Knowing that God’s love for us is unchanging and unconditional should not lead us to complacency or indifference. Instead, it should inspire us to live in the freedom that his love provides. When we truly grasp the depth of his love, it compels us to respond with gratitude, obedience and a desire to live in a way that honors him.

When we understand that God’s love is not based on our performance, it frees us from the burden of trying to earn his love. We can rest in the knowledge that we are fully accepted and loved by him, just as we are. This allows us to approach him with confidence, knowing that his love for us is steadfast and unchanging.

Bible Verses About God’s Unchanging Love

Here are a few Bible verses about God’s unchanging love:

1. Romans 8:38–39: “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

2. Jeremiah 31:3: “The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: ‘I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.’”

3. 1 John 4:9–10: “This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.”

4. Ephesians 2:4–5: “But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.”

5. Psalm 103:8: “The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love.”

So, the next time you find yourself asking, “Lord, do you still love me?” remember that your position in Christ as a son or daughter of God is secure. Your mistakes and foolishness do not change God’s love for you. He loves you unconditionally, and his love is constant and unwavering. Embrace this truth and live in the freedom and confidence it brings. And remember: The stupid things we’ve done or said don’t change our position in Christ—we can never make God love us anymore or any less than he already does.
