John 17:23, “I (Jesus Christ) in the sphere of them (Church Age believers) and You (God the Father) in the sphere of Me, in order that they may be perfected in unity (with God), so that the world (unbelievers) would know that You sent Me and You loved them even as You loved Me.”

1. Toward God; Love toward the perfect righteousness of the other two members of the Trinity. 2. Toward Mankind; saved and unsaved.

John 3:16,“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”


John 3:36,“He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”

a. God’s love toward unsaved, spiritually dead mankind is Impersonal Love due to man’s relative righteousness, Phil 3:9; Titus 3:5-7.

Phil 3:9, “And (I Paul) may be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own derived from the Law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which comes from God on the basis of faith.”


b. When anyone believes in Christ, The Father imputes His perfect righteousness to them for: 1) justification, 2) logistical grace, 3) personal love of all believers.Rom 10:10; 2 Cor 5:21

Rom 10:10,“For with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.”
2 Cor 5:21,“He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”

3. Toward policy; This describes the difference in Divine policy towards the believer and unbeliever, both of whom God loves. Rom 9:13, “Jacob I loved; Esau I hated.”

D. Divine Impersonal Love for the unbeliever emphasizes the integrity of the subject (God).John 3:16 and Rom 5:8

John 3:16,“God loved the world so much that He gave His Son, the uniquely-born One, that anyone who believes in Him shall never perish but have eternal life.”

Rom 5:8, “God demonstrates His own love toward us in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died as a substitute for us.”
1 the object of god s personal love is his perfect righteousness inside of you the believer
1. The object of God’s personal love is His perfect righteousness inside of you, the believer.
2. Divine Love is attracted to perfect Divine righteousness (+R) and can only have perfect righteousness as its object.

a) At the moment of salvation, every believer not only has regeneration through Divine Impersonal Love, but he also has Divine Personal Love.

b) Three results from the imputation of +R.1) Justification, Rom 5:1.2) God’s love changes from Impersonal Love to Personal Love.

b) Three results from the imputation of +R.1) Justification, Rom 5:1.2) God’s love changes from Impersonal Love to Personal Love.3) We receive logistical grace.

John 16:27,“For the Father Himself loves (PHILEO) you, because you have loved Me and have believed that I came forth from the Father.”

4. The moment you believe in Christ, you possess God’s righteousness, Rom 3:21-26; 4:3-8; 5:17-18; 10:10; 2 Cor 5:21; Gal 3:6; 1 Peter 2:24. Now God can say to you, “I love YOU.”

1. God’s +R in the believer is the basis for logistical grace blessing whether he is a winner believer or loser believer.
2. The mechanics of logistical grace blessing include the two parts of Divine holiness (righteousness and justice).

Grace is the function of the justice of God in providing blessing for the human race under the Laws of Divine Establishment and for the believer under the Plan of God.

3. Our point of contact is the justice of God, not the love of God, yet, the love of God is His motivation to bless us.
