52 Seven Times God Speaks of His Love
I am Fred Myers the founder of For the Fathers Ministry, and this is Faith by the Numbers.
Count your way to wisdom in number fifty-two of this series, Seven Times God Speaks of His Love.
I have heard many theologians say that God’s love is conditional, therefore God only loves believers. Some say it is misleading to tell unbelievers that God loves them because the unbeliever will not become aware of his lost condition if he were told that God loved him. But, the Bible speaks specific things about the “love of God”, and the answer of who God loves will become apparent.
Seven Times God Speaks of His Love:
- God loved all mankind first.
- God loved all mankind so much that He sent Jesus Christ to die that all might be saved.
- God loves the whole world…this means everyone.
- God being rich in mercy loved everyone, even when they were dead in their sin.
- God takes no pleasure in the wicked and their confinement in Hell.
- God would rather the wicked turn and be saved.
- God’s love is precious and steadfast to all mankind.
The answer about whether God loves all mankind is yes, God does love everyone. The question for the lost is do you love God, and are you willing to repent of your sin to be in the presence of God’s love for eternity? The question for Christians is will you tell unbelievers that God does love them and wants them to be saved. Imitate Jesus, look for the unbeliever, love the unbeliever, but do not condone or participate in the unbeliever’s sin, but speak the Gospel to them so they will have treasures in heaven and know God’s love for all eternity.

It is my prayer that many will count their way to wisdom through this series and find the peace that surpasses all understanding.
1 Jn 4:19 We love because he first loved us.
1 Jn 4:10 In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
Jn 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
Eph 2:4 But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, Eph 2:5 even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved—
Eze 33:11 Say to them, As I live, declares the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live; turn back, turn back from your evil ways, for why will you die, O house of Israel?
Eze 18:23 Have I any pleasure in the death of the wicked, declares the Lord God, and not rather that he should turn from his way and live?
Ps 36:7 How precious is your steadfast love, O God! The children of mankind take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
