Christian Songs About God's Love



We've all heard the bible verse, "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son." Do you remember that love every day? Do you see it in the sunrise? Feel it in the gentle breeze? Hear it in a song? Music is a wonderful way to be reminded about just how much God loves us and songs about God's love will help remind you to love your neighbor - even when they are not behaving in a way that is very "love inspiring."

1. "Banner of Love" - Luminate

Luminate – Welcome to Daylight
Sparrow Records

From the song ...

I want to be Your love
I want to lift You higher
I want to reach out and touch this world
I'm gonna reach out and love Your world
We want to show Your love
We want to lift You higher
We're gonna reach out and change this world 

We shouldn't just talk about living and loving like Christ does; we should be a banner of His love for all the world to see.

2. "Because Of Your Love" - Phil Wickham

Phil Wickham - Heaven & Earth

From the song ...

Innocent and Holy king
You died to set the captive free
All because of your love
Lord you gave your life for me
So I will give my life for you
All because of your love
All because of your love 

The powerful message in this song makes it clear that Jesus loves us beyond rhyme or reason.

3. "Don't Have Love" - Holly Starr

Holly Starr - Focus
Artist Garden Entertainment

From the song ...

You can have money, and cool friends, a ring on your left hand
But it's never gonna be enough, if you don't have love
You don't have love
You can have a fast car, a mansion, and everyone's attention
But it's never gonna be enough, if you don't have love
You don't have love, you don't have love

You can have all of the stuff in the world - the money, the mansions, the movie star lifestyle, but without love, it all means absolutely nothing.

4. "Everyday Your Love Is New" - Esterlyn

Esterlyn - Woven

From the song ...

It's a fight that we're all gonna have to face
To live a life where we're nothing apart from grace
Oh Jesus make our will Your very own
We feel the pull of wonder
We wonder everyday
We need Your love to lead us
To show us thw way

Our love is fickle and changes with the tides. The love that Jesus has for us, however, is as eternal as it gets and though we may find ourselves walking a path we shouldn't be, He never turns his back on us.

5. "For Love Of You" - Audrey Assad

Audrey Assad - The House You're Building
Sparrow Records

From the song ...

For love of You
I'm a sky on fire
For love of You
I come alive
It's Your Sacred Heart within me beating
Your voice within me singing
(out for love of You)

If you could sit down and have a face-to-face conversation with God, would you share your heart like Audrey does?

6. "His Kind Of Love" - Group 1 Crew

Group 1 Crew – Fearless
Fervent Records

From the song ...

His kind of love (His kind of love)
Is reckless for us
His kind of love is will never give up
‘Til the whole world knows how far He went to show
His kind of love
His kind of love

God's love for us isn't something that we can easily explain. It defies logic and reason, yet it is.

7. "How He Loves" - David Crowder*Band

David Crowder*Band - Church Music
Sparrow Records/sixstepsrecords

From the song ...

He is jealous for me, Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,
Bending beneath the weight of his wind and mercy.
When all of a sudden, I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory,
And I realize just how beautiful You are,
And how great Your affections are for me.

The David Crowder*Band is a perfect way to end the playlist and enter the school (or work) day because it tells us the biggest truth we can hear ... Jesus loves us!

8. "Learn To Love" - Leeland

Leeland - Love Is On The Move

From the song ...

Pray for each other
Stand in together
We'll see his kingdom come
Shinning like the sun
Something is stirring
A new day is calling
Jesus Is the king
We lift our voice and sing

Leeland's "Learn To Love" tells us that we're all in this thing called life together. Instead of building little fiefdom's (think high school or office clicques and/or socio-economic groups that never cross into each other's camps), we should come together to build a kingdom. In a "me, me, me" world, we need an "us" revolution!

9. "Let Us Love" - Needtobreathe

Needtobreathe - The Outsiders

From the song ...

Let us love (like we were children)
Make us feel (like we're still living)
in a world I know is burning to the ground

Call this tune an anthem or name it a call to arms ... for that matter, call it whatever you like, as long as you listen to the lyrics.

10. "Love Has Come" - Mark Schultz

Mark Schultz - Come Aive

From the song ...

Well, I know this life is filled with sorrow
And there are days when the pain just lasts and lasts
But I know there will come a day
When all our tears are washed away with a break in the clouds
His glory coming down and in that moment

Nowhere in the Bible does it promise us that accepting Christ means a life of rainbows and roses. It does, however, let us know that no matter how bad things are, we do not walk alone (Hebrews 13:5). There will be days when no matter how hard we try, things just don't go our way and we end up getting hurt. Knowing that all of the days of sorrow in this life added together and multiplied by 1000 won't even come close to the joy of one single day in His presence somehow makes today's hurts more bearable.
