He Calls You Beloved

In the Bible, God reveals His passionate, tender love for His people in the terms of endearment which He lavishes upon us. I have compiled the following alphabetical list using the King James Version (KJV). It includes God’s affectionate names for us, as well as those which describe the qualities of people who know Him intimately.

The list is incomplete at this time, but I will continue to update it and organize it as I find more to add.

See how He loves you!
