"God's Own Words" in the title of this article refers to quotes that are spoken by God in the first person, and addressed to a specific individual or group. They are not descriptions or explanations, but personal expressions of love which the listener (or reader) can safely paraphrase into "I love you."

Although the Book of Isaiah contains messages of rebuke and judgment for a rebellious nation, it contains some of the most comforting love messages from God. It is a sample of His continual, unconditional love in action when people repent and accept His forgiveness. If at any point in the book, today's readers become discouraged by the threat of God's punishment, just reading a little further will bring them to sweet promises of His love.

In the New Testament, Jesus makes it clear that His words are words which the Father wants Him to speak; therefore His expressions are included as God's expressions.

Feel loved as you read these thirty love quotes which God Himself speaks to you when they are appropriate for your situation. They are extracted from the New Living Translation unless another version is mentioned.
