Identity of God Lesson #6

The Love of God


Intro: What is something that you love to do after school or work is over?



  1. 2 Cor 4:4, 1 Tim 4:1 We are living in a world today that is confused about the reality of God, and the identity of who God is.
    1. Phil 4:6-8 When we accept Christ, and understand the reality of God, we learn God wants to show us his true identity.
      1. 1 John 4:16 God is love, every aspect of who God is and why God does what he does the way he does it is because of his perfect love for man.
      2. 1 John 4:8, 4:18 If we do not know God, and have a personal relationship with God, than it impossible to correctly understand love, or how to love others.
    2. Gen 3:1-4 The devil lied to Adam and Eve about Gods true identity, accusing God of holding out on them, and today satan still tricks man into turning from God
  2. 1 John 1:9 John 3:16 God showed the depth of his love for mankind by sending his son Jesus to die on the cross for our sins, saving us from an eternity in Hell.
    1. Deut 7:9, Deut 31:6 When we surrender to God, follow and trust God, he will lead us, guide us, protect us from harm and bless us in every way.
      1. Jer 29:11-13, Is 55:8 Because God loves us and knows whats best, there will be times he will not do things our way, or give us what we want when we want it.
      2. Prov 3:5-6, Ps 37:28 Each of us have a choice to make, we can either surrender completely to God trusting he knows what best for us, or we can turn from God, go our own way, and have many unneeded struggles and problems in life.
    2. Ps 136:25, 86:15 Romans 5:8 We are called to show the love of God to the world helping others discover the identity of God and be saved!




  1. What are some of the many ways you have seen Gods love revealed in your life? In what ways has God come through for you?
  2. Why can it be so hard to surrender to God, let go of our will and our plans and trust that Gods will is best?
  3. Who has an example of a time when you chose to trust God, rather than do things your way? In what ways has your life been better for waiting on God?
  4. Why do you think so many people today have a wrong concept of love? as well as a wrong idea of Gods love?


End: Pray for any who need to know the love of God in their lives, pray for any who need to accept Christ, then take requests.
