|John 3:16 and following|
An outstanding Bible scholar was asked, "What is the greatest truth you've discovered in all of your years of studying the Bible?"
Without a moment's hesitation, he said, "Jesus loves me; this I know. For the Bible tells me so."
Indeed! The Bible is filled with assurances that we are loved more than we can imagine. For example, in John 3:16, Jesus affirms the great love He and His Father have for us:
For God so loved the world,
that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him shall not perish,
but have eternal life.
In John 14:21, Jesus gives yet another affirmation of His love and God's love:
He who has My commandments and keeps them,
he it is who loves Me;
and he who loves Me
shall be loved by My Father,
and I will love him,
and will disclose [reveal, manifest] Myself to him.
