God is Love. God is Good.
We love Him because He first loved us. 1 John 4:19 NKJV
The goodness of God endures continually. Psalm 52:1 NKJV
God is love. God is good.
God loves you. God is good to you.
God is unchangeable.
God’s love for you and goodness to you have never changed, and will not change. God demonstrated His goodness and love for you in the Gospel of His Son. It is a truth that He has confirmed and sealed with a promise and an oath.
God didn’t need to “fall in love with you.” He has always loved you.
You didn’t do anything to earn His love. His love has always been.
God loves you completely. He loves you today as He has always loved you—with the same breadth, length, height, and depth. His love can never be depleted or diminished. He doesn’t love you more today than He did yesterday, and He won’t love you less tomorrow than He does at this very moment.
God is good to you. He is not good to you because you have earned it. God is good to you because it is in His nature to be good. He is only good and always good. (“God is good to us and loves to bless us, He can’t help Himself.” –Dean Kerns)
Since you can’t earn God’s love or goodness, what can you do?
You can respond to His love and goodness—
(What shall I render to the Lord for all His benefits toward me? [How can I repay Him for all His bountiful dealings?] I will lift up the cup of salvation and deliverance and call on the name of the Lord. Psalm 116:12-13 AMP )
You can believe the Gospel (to believe the Gospel is to say “yes” to His love and goodness through your repentance and faith).
You can thank Him, and praise Him!
You can glorify Him and honor Him.
You can worship Him and place all at His feet.
You can seek Him and trust Him.
You can joyfully obey Him.
You can delight in Him and enjoy Him.
And most of all, you can love Him with all your heart!
