These verses speak of the reassurance of God's love towards us. There will be times in our life where we query if God truly loves us, and usually, it's during a trial in our life or when our prayers are not being answered according to how we think they should be. It is vitally important during those times that we faithfully continue daily to be in God's Word as it reminds us throughout the pages of His unwavering love for us. There is no doubt, someone in your life, that you would do anything for because of the love you have for them. However, think about going through great lengths to do something for someone who does not love you. That's what God did for the whole world. God loves everyone, even those who have hated Him, rejected Him, and do all they can to "try" to remove God from their life and country. If God loved us when we were lost and without him, no doubt His love is still the same as born again believers. The love that He shows us is eternal through His Son, Jesus Christ, who took our place and died shedding His blood for our sins. Not only that, but He lives within us as born again believers, to guide, direct, instruct, bless, and so much more. God really does love us, and we can be assured of His love by looking back at the cross, looking now through His Word, and looking forward to eternity.
For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 5:6-8 (KJV)
