Top five love quotes from the Bible
FREE Catholic Classes
With all of the hate crimes, police murders, rapes and general evil going on across the globe, it is important to take a step back and cleanse yourself in the Father's love. Today Catholic Online presents their top five Bible verses on God's love.
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA (Catholic Online) - There are many forms of love but the love between our Heavenly Father and ourselves is the most important of them all. We've all heard 1 Corinthians 13, "Love is patient, love is kind..." but what else does the Bible have to say about love? Specifically God's love for us?
Here we at Catholic Online have listed our top five favorite love verses. Enjoy!
5. Romans 5:5
"And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us."
God loved us so much that He gave us the Holy Spirit. When we overflow in God's love, the Holy Spirit is present and touches our hearts with a love for God that runs deeper than the greatest ocean.
4. Deuteronomy 7:9
"Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; He is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love Him and keep His commands."
Most know firsthand that love between a man and woman is not always a faithful one. The pain that follows unfaithfulness can be crippling, but God will never be unfaithful.
God will always be and will always love you. Never forget His love is unchanging.
3. John 3:16
"For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life."
An oldie but a goodie. What says, "I love you" more than sacrificing your only son for the sins others committed?
It is a tremendous love God has for us, and though we don't feel worthy of such love it doesn't mean He will forsake us. After sacrificing His Son, there is nothing we can do that He will not forgive.
2. 1 John 3:1
"How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him."
1 John 3:1 is to be read with excitement! Knowing you are loved by God isn't something you should take for granted, you should exalt in it and cry out to the world, "My God loves me!"
In today's world, believers are viewed with disgust by some and continue to be ridiculed. "The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him" suddenly comes into focus when you think of how unbelievers see us.

Despite the disbelief around us, God smiles and loves on us every day of our lives. So rejoice! We are children of God!
1. Hosea 2:23
"I will plant her for myself in the land; I will show my love to the one I called 'Not my loved one.' I will say to those called 'Not my people,' 'You are my people'; and they will say, 'You are my God.'"
Hosea 2:23 was chosen as the number one love quote because the second chapter of Hosea describes what God does to the people who turn from him. It begins with a terrible punishment that takes time to enact but is followed by more love and tenderness than one can possibly endure.
God does not need to teach anyone to love Him, but a true lover of your heart will always take the time to show you the error of your ways and bring you back to what is right. God's words are powerful and in this verse He not only calls those who once sinned His people, he also allows them to claim Him by saying "You are my God."
