And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. (1 John 4:16)
God loves all mankind as parents love their own children. God desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. His love extends to all nations and peoples. God’s most wonderful love is expressed in this fact: “God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life” (Jn 3:16).
