  1. God’s love is unconditional.
    • Unconditional = not subject to conditions; unlimited and unrestricted.
    • There is nothing you can do or not do to keep God from loving you.
    • God does not like unrighteousness, but He does love the sinner. He loves the sinner but hates the sin.
    • God loves those that you don’t think are lovable.
    • John 3:16
      • This is one of the most powerful scriptures as it relates to God’s love and His plan.
      • He loved us so much that He gave. Love is an action word.
        • He gave His Son (Jesus Christ).
        • Begotten = unique; the only one of His kind.
    • Romans 5:6-8
      • Christ died for the ungodly.
      • Commendeth His love = demonstrated His love.
    • 1 John 4:9-10
      • Propitiation = means by which our sins are forgiven.
      • Christ was the only suitable sacrifice (atoning sacrifice).
  2. God’s love is inconceivable (or unbelievable).
    • Inconceivable = not capable of being imagined or fully grasped mentally.
    • Ephesians 3:17-19
      • You cannot fully grasp God’s love¬†intellectually, but you have to experience it.
      • His love surpasses mere knowledge; it is too great to fully understand.
      • God is not like man.
  3. God’s love is inseparable.
    • Inseparable = unable to divide/separate.
    • Romans 8:35-39
      • Even the things that we may go through does not have the ability to separate us from the love of God (God’s love for us).
      • We are super conquerors (more than conquerors).
      • Persuaded = convinced.
  4. ¬†God’s love is everlasting (never-ending).
    • Jeremiah 31:3
    • He loved you in the past, He loves you in the present, and He’ll love you in the future.
