This Is How You Know God Loves You

God’s love is not his sparing us suffering and death, John Piper states in this video. God's love is mainly his showing us and giving us himself in his glory.

John Piper: "God loves us mainly by giving us himself and all that he is for us in Jesus. Jesus loves us mainly by giving us himself and all that God is for us in him."

Everlasting glory
That’s mainly the way he loves us. He loves us other ways, but mainly everything is moving toward that. You are loved by Jesus when Jesus gives you Jesus and all that God is for you in Jesus. So please, do not measure God’s love for you by how much health, wealth, and comfort he brings into your life. If that were the measure of God’s love, then he hated the apostle Paul.

Measure God’s love for you by how much of himself he shows you. Measure the love of God for you by how much of himself he gives you to know and enjoy through it all — and then into everlasting glory in due time. You’ve tasted it, haven’t you? You know what I mean.
