What kind of love does God have toward us?
On one occasion, Paul described God’s love like this:
“But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,” (Ephesians 2:4)
According to the context, even before we were saved God had (and by default still does) a great love for us – a love too large to express in words alone.
Read Ephesians 2 and you will see that this great love, expressed through Jesus, was great enough to cover the multitude of our sins against God, to cover the vast distance between us and a right relationship with God, and to cover us all in the same household and family of God.
And that’s why Paul considered the love of God to be huge news for the world!
