For God so loved you …

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved” (John 3:16-17, KJV).


  His love is incredibly longsuffering, releasing a saving grace for all believers in His Son. A Son, whose liberating life, death and resurrection demolishes all oppressions and every stronghold.


His love overcomes all sin and separation and is overreaching in its capacities to satisfy. His love saves us, bringing a living hope to the hopeless. His love is a love from which we cannot be separated.


His loving us as sinners, allowed His Son to be humbled in the most vulnerable of sacrifices unto death. Christ’s love is beyond vigilant in the shedding of His blood to cover all the sins of a fallen creation lost in its sin, disregard, pride and lusts.


His love is unfathomable and extravagantly lavished upon us when we are so obscenely self-centered. His love is eternally securing in our relationship with Him granting us a peace that passes understanding.


Longsuffering and liberating, overcoming and overreaching, vulnerable and vigilant and extravagant and eternal are just words that describe God’s love. Still these and millions of other words fall away insufficient to describe even the beginning facets of His love. A myriad of words from a myriad of angels cannot express the love of God unfolding before them and the world cannot contain all the books it would take to express the love lived out in gift of His Son.


Oh, that we would grasp the slightest dimensions of the width and breath and length of His love that through His grace makes us adopted royalty in a living Spirit secured eternity.  Oh, that we would allow this incredible favoring, to fragrance our lives with the love of Christ to become to others the compassionate love that He is to us. Oh, that we would love like we are loved by our Living God.


Oh Lord, pour out your love again upon us … your indescribable love that carries us now and eternally home. Dear Eternal Father, you are love. Thank you for your love steadfast and everlasting upon us.  Thank you for loving all the world. Thank you for loving us.
