EPHESIANS 3:18-19 NLT ~ And may you have the power to understand, as all God's
people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his
love really is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is so great
you will never fully understand it. Then you will be filled
with the fullness of life and power that comes from God.
How can words describe, or humans fully understand, something
that is as deep as God Himself? God's love is greater than
words have the ability to communicate. It is impossible to put
How can we explain the unexplainable? How can we know
something that is beyond the ability of human knowledge to
comprehend? We would have to be God Himself to fully
understand why He loves us the way He does. Don't expect to
ever understand it. But we can accept it. We can believe it.
We can experience it and enjoy it.
God's love for us was demonstrated in redemption. God took
our place and suffered what we deserved, so we could be
forgiven and go free. God proved that He loved us more than He
loves Himself. He did not spare Himself to help us.
God's love for us is also evident in creation. Not just in
abundant provision, but also in all the beauty He created for
our enjoyment. What a wonderful display of the loving and
giving nature of God. Not only did He make everything we need,
but He made it in abundance -- and with great variety.
Every good thing in life was created by God for you and me because of
His great love for us.
You won't find anyone that comes even close to loving you the
way that Christ does. It is hard to grasp when you really think about it.
But, isn't it awesome that someone loves us that much. He isn't like anyone else.
