God's Perfect Love Toward Humanity
Transcript of God's Perfect Love Toward Humanity
God's Perfect Love for the Elect
God's Perfect Love in the Trinity
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.”
The Declared Love of God
"7 It was not because you were more in number than any other people that the LORD set his love on you and chose you, for you were the fewest of all peoples, 8 but it is because the LORD loves you and is keeping the oath that he swore to your fathers, that the LORD has brought you out with a mighty hand and redeemed you from the house of slavery, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt."
"25 Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, 26 that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word"
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life."
The Timing of God's Declared Love
This was always God's Plan
1 Peter 1:20
“He was foreknown before the foundation of the world but was made manifest in the last times for the sake of you.”
“and all who dwell on earth will worship it, everyone whose name has not been written before the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who was slain.”
History was Preparing us to Understand
“1 I mean that the heir, as long as he is a child, is no different from a slave, though he is the owner of everything, 2 but he is under guardians and managers until the date set by his father. 3 In the same way we also, when we were children, were enslaved to the elementary principles of the world. 4 But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, 5 to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. 6 And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” 7 So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God.”

Objects of the Declared Love of God
God loves because it is His infinite capacity to love not because of the loveliness of those He loves.
Reflecting on God's Declared Love
The Love of God is the Primary Basis of Our Assurance of Salvation
“31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? 33 Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? 36 As it is written, “For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.” 37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.”
The Love of God is the Basis of Our Love for Others
