Can God Love You More Than He Does Now?

by | Jul 13, 2015 | Church & Ministry

Human love wears out; that’s why we have so many divorces. I know a lot of people who are not divorced, but they don’t love their spouses anymore. There’s a limit to human love. It dries up!

That’s why you have to have God’s love in your marriage—in all your relationships—if they are going to last. God’s love never wears out. God’s love is patient, persistent and persevering.

Isn’t it good news that God never gives up on you? No matter what you do, His love never gives up. It’s wide enough to include everybody, and it’s long enough to last forever. 

God will never love you any more than He does right now. But he also will never love you any less than he does right now. 

He loves you on your good days; He loves you on your bad days. His love is not conditioned by your response. God is love, and His love is given freely. It cannot be earned, and it is undeserved.

Accept His love and worship Him, knowing that His love is long enough to last for all time: “For I have said, ‘Mercy shall be built up forever; Your faithfulness shall be established in the heavens'”(Ps. 89:2).

Talk It Over

  • What do you experience freedom to do in your life when you understand that God will never give up on you?
  • What could you do to make God love you more? What could you do to make God love you less?
  • How do you think God wants you to respond to His love?

Rick Warren wrote the New York Times best-seller The Purpose Driven Life. His book, The Purpose Driven Church, was named one of the 100 Christian books that changed the 20th century. He is also founder of pastors.com, a global Internet community for pastors.
