Here are the 40 most powerful Bible scriptures on God’s character.
1 John 4:8
Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

Seek the Lord and his strength; seek his presence continually!

1 Corinthians 15:33
Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.”
1 John 1:9

1 Samuel 16:7

2 Corinthians 13:14

2 Peter 3:9
The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.
2 Timothy 3:16
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness.
The eternal God is your dwelling place, and underneath are the everlasting arms. And he thrust out the enemy before you and said, Destroy.
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness.
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.
He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high.
Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable.
And one called to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory!”
No one has ever seen God; the only God, who is at the Father’s side, he has made him known.
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
“Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.”
“And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.”
“God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.”
“For I the Lord do not change; therefore you, O children of Jacob, are not consumed.”
God is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
Whoever walks in integrity walks securely, but he who makes his ways crooked will be found out.
This God—his way is perfect; the word of the Lord proves true; he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him.
The counsel of the Lord stands forever, the plans of his heart to all generations.
Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires.
And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
