21 Challenging Quotes about God's Love

challenging Christian quotes about God's love


Are you wondering if God really loves you? Looking for inspiring Christian quotes about God’s love?

As a teenager, I used to have a notebook, and every time I ran across an inspiring Christian quote, I would write it down to revisit later. Though I don’t do that as much now, I still find it inspiring sometimes in my daily devotions to allow other Christian writer’s thoughts about God’s love to challenge me to think more deeply myself. We can get stuck thinking the same thoughts about God, and then out of nowhere, someone’s words slap us in the face and remind us that God’s love isn’t all warm-and-fuzzy feelings–it’s so much deeper and richer than that.

Below I’ve curated some of my favorite quotes about God’s love, ones that have challenged me and helped me delve even deeper into what God’s love for us looks like. I hope they give you a richer vocabulary to respond to God in prayer and help you better understand the magnitude of God’s love for you today.

God’s Unchanging Love

Though our feelings come and go, God’s love for us does not. C.S. Lewis

The nature of God’s love is unchangeable. Ours alternates all to readily. If it is our habit to love God with our own affection we shall turn cold towards Him whenever we are unhappy. Watchman Nee

Believe God’s love and power more than you believe your own feelings and experiences. Your rock is Christ, and it is not the rock that ebbs and flows but the sea. Samuel Rutherford

Measure not God’s love and favour by your own feeling. The sun shines as clearly in the darkest day as it does in the brightest. The difference is not in the sun, but in some clouds which hinder the manifestation of the light thereof. Richard Sibbes

God’s unfailing love for us is an objective fact affirmed over and over in the Scriptures. It is true whether we believe it or not. Our doubts do not destroy God’s love, nor does our faith create it. It originates in the very nature of God, who is love, and it flows to us through our union with His beloved Son.  Jerry Bridges

God’s Enormous Love

God loves each of us as if there were only one of us.  Augustine

By the cross we know the gravity of sin and the greatness of God’s love toward us. John Chrysostom

Nothing can separate you from God’s love absolutely nothing. God is enough for time, God is enough for eternity. God is enough! Hannah Whitall Smith

Saving us is the greatest and most concrete demonstration of God’s love, the definitive display of His grace throughout time and eternity. David Jeremiah21 Christian quotes about God's love that will challenge the way you think about God's love forever

God’s Surprising Love

God is love. He didn’t need us. But he wanted us. And that is the most amazing thing.  Rick Warren

When the time comes for you to die, you need not be afraid, because death cannot separate you from God’s love.  Charles Surgeon

We should be astonished at the goodness of God, stunned that He should bother to call us by name, our mouths wide open at His love, bewildered that at this very moment we are standing on holy ground. Brennan Manning

It’s not about finding ways to avoid God’s judgment and feeling like a failure if you don’t do everything perfectly. It’s about fully experiencing God’s love and letting it perfect you. It’s not about being somebody you are not. It’s about becoming who you really are. Stormie Omartian

Legalism says God will love us if we change. The gospel says God will change us because He loves us. Tullian Tchividjian

God’s Quieting Love

When I lay these questions before God I get no answer. But a rather special sort of ‘No answer.’ It is not the locked door. It is more like a silent, certainly not uncompassionate, gaze. As though He shook His head not in refusal but waiving the question. Like, ‘Peace, child; you don’t understand. C.S. Lewis

The greatest honor we can give Almighty God is to live gladly because of the knowledge of his love. Julian of Norwich

The sin underneath all our sins is to trust the lie of the serpent that we cannot trust the love and grace of Christ and must take matters into our own hands. Martin Luther

God’s Transforming Love

To ask that God’s love should be content with us as we are is to ask that God should cease to be God. C.S. Lewis

But the man who is not afraid to admit everything that he sees to be wrong with himself, and yet recognizes that he may be the object of God’s love precisely because of his shortcomings, can begin to be sincere. His sincerity is based on confidence, not in his own illusions about himself, but in the endless, unfailing mercy of God. Thomas Merton

One of the greatest evidences of God’s love to those that love him is to send them afflictions, with grace to bear them. John Wesley

Sociologists have a theory of the looking-glass self: you become what the most important person in your life (wife, father, boss, etc.) thinks you are. How would my life change if I truly believed the Bible’s astounding words about God’s love for me, if I looked in the mirror and saw what God sees? Philip Yancey
