The Conquering Power of the Love of God to Meet Our Needs

He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? -Romans 8:32

The Bible says in John 17:3, Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. 

As true Christians, it is all about knowing Jesus, and this comes from having a personal relationship with Jesus, which involves us spending time talking with Jesus and listening to his voice. When we know Jesus, we will be able to answer questions such as: Who is Jesus? How is his character? What did he do in the Bible? Why did he do it? How does he see me? What does he want me to do with my life? What does he have to say about this issue? What would he like me to do in this situation?

Another aspect of knowing Jesus is to know His love for us. John 3:16 says, “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.” According to this verse, our relationship with Jesus is a love relationship. Our life as followers of Jesus is to live receiving God’s love for us and to love God back with our lives. We may be able to understand on the surface level God’s love for us; however, God wants us to experience His love for us in our own hearts, where the passion of God’s love for us becomes a reality in our emotions and in turn transforms us. As true Christians, it’s more than just “knowing” God’s love for us. 


Besides that, there is depth to God’s love for us as the Bible says in Ephesians 3:18-19, “And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge – that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” 

As this verse says, for us to grasp (which means, to seize and hold firmly)  the depth of the love of God, it is through the Holy Spirit power in our hearts that gives us the revelation of God’s love for us. God wants us to live knowing the depths of His love for us and not just the knowledge of his love. 

1 Corinthians 8:1 says, “Knowledge puffs up while love builds up.”


When things are going well in life it may be easier to believe and receive God’s love for us; however, when we face trials in life, feel defeated, insecure, fearful, a loss, lost, or lacking anything, as followers of Jesus, it may become more difficult to believe and receive God’s love for us, and we may doubt God’s love for us. However, as Ephesians 3:18-19 says, the Lord Jesus wants us to remember that the solution now is for us to root ourselves and establish ourselves in love, and to hold firmly to the depth of the love of Christ for us at all times no matter the circumstances.

He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? -Romans 8:32

In times of trials, we all of a sudden face a personal need. However, Romans 8:32 proves God’s love for us. God is a Father who did not spare his own Son, Jesus Christ for us all. God did a major work, he made a major personal sacrifice for us, his greatest treasure, the gift of His Son for the redemption of mankind and so why should we ever doubt His goodness and generosity toward us? He certainly will not withhold from us anything else he has to give us. In Christ, Christians are secure in that there will be no unmet need.

Friend, in times of discouragement and defeat, remember to put your faith in the love of God for you. Call out to Jesus to show you His love so that you can experience His love for you. I pray 2 Thessalonians 3:5, “May the Lord direct your hearts into God’s love and Christ’s perseverance.”
