14 Scriptures About God's Love
A Love Letter From God

I once heard in a Seminary class that the scriptures can be like a love letter from God. Whether this “week of love” with Valentine’s Day is a time of great romance or a time of loneliness, we all have access to the greatest love of all: that of our Heavenly Father and our Savior Jesus Christ.

The sisters at This Blue Dress picked 14 verses that remind us of God’s infinite and perfect love. We hope you feel loved as you read through this collection. Many are from the Prophet John who taught about God’s love in sending us His Perfect Son.

1. 1 John 4:19

2. John 15:12-14 

Love one another scripture verse

14 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.

3. 1 Nephi 19:9

His Loving Kindness

And the world, because of their iniquity, shall judge him to be a thing of naught; wherefore they scourge him, and he suffereth it; and they smite him, and he suffereth it. Yea, they spit upon him, and he suffereth it, because of his loving kindness and his long-suffering towards the children of men.

8. John 8:10-11

Neither Do I Condemn Thee

Shall Be But a Small Moment
