The story of “The Love of God” is a tale as old as time itself, beginning with the creation of the world by our caring Father. Throughout history, despite humanity’s mistakes, God has always shown us immense love.

The 7 “I Will” Promises for Those Who Love Him

He couldn’t bear to see us separated from Him because of our wrong choices. Our gracious Father and Lord, the Creator of the universe, demonstrated immense love toward us.

From the dawn of creation, mankind held a central place. Yet, through corruption, mankind defied the will of God.

Despite the impending sentence of death, the Father’s love was too great to bear watching mankind perish and be forever separated from Him.

In His divine plan, a substitution was established. In the old covenant, sacrifices of goats and bulls were offered annually as substitutes for the sins of mankind, foreshadowing what was to come.

However, these sacrifices had limitations, as expressed in the Scriptures:

“For the Law, since it has only a shadow of the good things to come and not the very form of things, can never, by the same sacrifices which they offer continually year by year, make perfect those who draw near.

Otherwise, would they not have ceased to be offered, because the worshipers, having once been cleansed, would no longer have had consciousness of sins? 

But in those sacrifices, there is a reminder of sins year by year. 

For the blood of bulls and goats can’t take away sins.” – Hebrews 10:1-4 NASB1995

In the new covenant, “…God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” – John 3:16 NASB1995

Jesus Christ, as John the Baptist put it, became “…the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” – John 1:29 NASB1995

Christ’s sacrifice was once and for all. “For by one offering, He has perfected for all time those who are sanctified. Now where there is forgiveness of these things, there is no longer any offering for sin.” – Hebrews 10:14, 18 NASB1995

This exemplifies the love of God:

“Surely our griefs He bore, And our sorrows He carried; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten of God, and afflicted. 

But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; 

The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, And by His scourging, we are healed.

All of us like sheep have gone astray, Each of us has turned to his way, But the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all To fall on Him.

He was oppressed and He was afflicted, Yet He did not open His mouth;

Like a lamb that is led to slaughter, And like a sheep that is silent before its shearers, So He did not open His mouth.

But the Lord was pleased To crush Him, putting Him to grief; If He would render Himself as a guilt offering, He will see His offspring, He will prolong His days, And the good pleasure of the Lord will prosper in His hand.” – Isaiah 53:4-7, 10 NASB1995

Our Response to God’s Love:

“See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God, and such we are. For this reason, the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.” – 1 John 3:1 NASB1995

“We know love by this, that He laid down His life for us; and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. 

Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth. 

This is His commandment, that we believe in the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as He commanded us.” – 1 John 3:16, 18, 23 NASB1995

“Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. 

We have come to know and believe in the love which God has for us. 

God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. 

By this, love is perfected with us, so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment; because as He is, so also are we in this world. 

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love. 

We love because He first loved us. 

If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for the one who does not love his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen. 

And this commandment we have from Him, that the one who loves God should love his brother also.” – 1 John 4:15-21 NASB1995

God’s Provision for those Who Love Him – The 7 “I Will” Promises:

In Psalm 91:14-16, God declared His Promises assigned to those who love Him. 

“Because he has loved Me, therefore:

His Deliverance – I will deliver him;

His Promotion – I will set him securely on high because he has known My name.

His Answer to Prayers – He will call upon Me, and I will answer him;

His Presence – I will be with him in trouble;

His Rescue and Dignity – I will rescue him and honor him.

His Longevity – With a long life I will satisfy him

His Salvation – And (I will) let him see My salvation.” – Psalms 91:14-16 NASB1995
