10 Bible Verses of Encouragement about Love

We all need encouragement and the best place to go is to the Bible.

In this blog post I have tried to gather some Bible passages or Bible verses which will encourage us all around the topic of God's Love.

I do believe that we should not just grab a verse and read it on its own but we should always lift our bibles and read a passage of scripture to make sure that we know the real meaning and context of each of the verses we are putting our trust in. 

I pray that you will do the same and only use this list to guide you as to where you may find help.

So here are 10 Bible verses or short passages for us to turn to in times when we need to be encouraged about Love 

1.   Zephaniah 3 v 17    

Perhaps this is the first thing we need to let God do

-  quiet us with His love


2.   Deuteronomy 6 v 5

God instructed His people about loving HIM from the beginning.

And God has not changed so His Word to us does not change.

3.   Leviticus 19 v 18

God also instructed His people about loving OTHERS from the beginning

"You shall not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the children of your people, but you shall love your neighbour as yourself: I am the Lord."

Yes it's not just a command in the New Testament.

4.   John 13 v 34

God's love may be for us but we have to remember that God does not expect us just to receive His love and keep it to ourselves.

God loves us because He is Love but He also loves us so that we can love others and in fact it is a command.

5.   John 3 v 16 

Always considered a verse about Salvation but it is also one of the best verses to show us this great love of God

the Love that caused everything else to be and gave us the only way to become His children

6.   1 John 4 v 18 

The only perfect love is the love of God and fear cannot exist where that perfect love is.    

7.   1 Chronicles 16 v 34

What have we got the example of from way back in the Old Testament?

To give thanks to God for His goodness which is the result of His everlasting Love.

8.   Proverbs 10 v 12

There is always wisdom to be learned in the book of Proverbs.

The Love of God led to the death of Jesus for our sins against the hate the enemy has towards God and us.

Let us remember that we can show God's Love instead of hate to all people. 

9.   Psalm 36 v 7

It is important that we realise, understand, acknowledge, and be thankful for His great love - it will help us to trust in Him more.

10.   1 Corinthians 16 v 14



What better way to finish than by remembering this admonition by the Apostle Paul at the end of his first letter to the Church at Corinth.
