These Created with Love scriptures go perfectly with our free retreat theme of the same name. Use the extra scriptures here as a supplement to the rest of the theme resources.
It continuously amazes me to realize that God created each of us with love. We are His handiwork and are created in Christ Jesus to do good works. Wow!
Doesn’t that just change the way you see God? And yourself?
It does me!
Anytime we feel like we don’t have anything to offer to those around us, we need to remember how the Lord created us with magnificent love.
He breathed life and His love within us, and with that love we have so much to give to the world.
I’ve put together this list of scriptures to help you remember you are created with love. They go perfectly with the Created with Love theme, and you might also like to keep them handy as reference for yourself. You’ll find a link to print them at the end of this post.

What Happens When We Learn Our Identity
We Understand How Much We’re Loved
People typically look to others for love and can have a skewed concept of what love actually is.
We Acknowledge Our Blessings and Strive to Bless Others
Being able to view all of our blessing in the obvious and in the not-so-obvious, opens up a whole new avenue for us to allow Christ to live through us. Through our faith and our actions, Christ blesses others.
We Recognize Our Worth because of Christ Within
No matter what we do in our daily lives, if we don’t understand our worthiness from Christ within us we won’t be open to allowing Him to work through us.
Ways Knowing We are Created with Love Changes Us
We understand our worthiness IN Christ.
With Christ in us, He leads the way. We are the vessel to share His love with others.
We no longer fear rejection.
Understanding the love behind our creation helps us understand the greatest acceptance of all – God’s love.
We are able to live in love rather than darkness.
While we will still face hard times and difficult people, we can confidently greet each experience with love and knowledge that we will be okay.
